We all have a story. Battles, dreams, failures, life tips to share. I invested everything I owned and went across the world to meet the ordinary heroes in 20 countries for 16 months with the aim of giving value to these stories, aiding knowledge through media, and with a little luck, inspiring people every day.
All these stories are not only life stories, it is a knowledge acquired through experiences of every person, in every country. This is an essential knowledge for us and future generations. Since we were children, our education has been conditioned by experiences and through the influences of our own parents, themselves taught by their parents who formalised their world view through their life experiences and that of their parents. An infinite and ongoing process. This project has no affiliation with regard to race, religion or social status. This is a study of human beings.
I am convinced of one thing, which also motivates the risks I take every day in certain countries: I think the biggest issue of the society in which we live, poverty, war, loneliness, etc. depend on a more complex mechanism exclusively based on the perception we have of the other. If we get to know and try to understand each other, our cultures, choices and backgrounds, I am convinced that this could impact our global and human relationships, with regards to empathy, solidarity benefitting positive social change. Nothing very utopian, just opening our eyes a little wider.
We have much to learn from each other and can not be limited by appearances, as we are all students, teachers and humans, regardless the way we perceive each others lives.
