I have had a really good evening. Inspiring and just chill. After eating a little bit of dinner I went to Sollentuna to talk to Malin who is the responsible one for the volunteer work in Tanzania. I talked to her about how I feel about the work and how I feel about the others input and so on. It felt very good talking to her as she’s on my side and totally understands my feelings. I have worked so much that I got gastric catarrh which not really is a good thing while many of the others does not work at all. This is sad when this is such an important work and something that will really change your view on things. Not everyone get this chance in their lifetime to do something like this, so when you get the chance you should take care of it and work for it. She said that I don’t have to worry and that I can take everything as I like. I don’t have to worry about not being able to go because I will be able to go. When I got home I saw a message from her saying that my body and my health is the most important thing and that made me so happy. I love people like her, inspiring, motivational, pushing,helping and fighting for their selves but also fights to help other.
I did not have the time to listen to the lecture the FN(UN) had because I was talking to the others working at Satelliten. If you live in municipalities close to Sollentuna I really think you should take you time to visit. They have a lot for teens and young adults and work for getting youths to engage in questions and getting them to work towards their dreams.
Anyhow, I did not have the time to listen but I did get the chance to talk witha few from the audience about the lecture and they said that it was a really good lecture with a lot of good and eye-opening stories, as the same time as it was educational. This is what you want a lecture to be about. At least I want it that way.
One of the people I got to talk to was a younger girl, maybe 14-15 years old and I got so happy to see how interested she was about this and other important questions like the agriculture, environmental issues, right or wrong, world peace and I could just see how passionate she is in her eyes. I did sometimes see that she struggled with finding the accurate word for the explanation but things like that does not matter. She is young, she is interested. That is what’s important, not that she didn’t remember all explaining words. Even I can’t do that sometimes. I think I talked to this girl for over a half an hour and it felt so good to be able to get the chance to be one of the persons that hopefully gave her inspiration and motivation to keep on going. I gave her my number and said that she could text or call me whenever she wanted just to talk and discuss because I noticed that she did not have someone close to her age that she could talk about things like this with. And a person needs to discuss their thoughts and interests with someone that listens with both ears. I hope she will call and does not feel too scared.
Because it is the UN day here in Sweden I did get chocked over the fact that her school had not put one single thought about this. They did not talk about the UN and what they do, they did not even say it was the UN day today and explained what it means. I do find that chocking. In my school and in all my life in school especially in primary school we worked A LOT with UN questions about this time. I remember us having a UN week when we got to read about a country or color a country's flag when we were very young to being in groups working a week before having a debate about UN questions. When I was young I remember us talking about world peace and singing songs about peace in the world. I remember the teachers reading us a story about what the UN does and why it is so great. The UN and their work has ALWAYS been something you talk to children about. To find out that they had not put one single thought in this day made me sad. She even said that she had tried to influence them and tried to get them to talk about the UN but they had just said no because they had not focused on this. How can you not focus on something so important like this? How can you not want to talk to young people about this, how can you not want to inspire and motivate young people to work for world peace when they get older? How can you just prioritize something else?
No, I can’t understand that. But it made me happy to see a girl that passionate about this. I am a lucky person if I get the chance to push her forward. Inspiring younger people to doing what they dream about is something I love doing. Maybe she just helped me open another door in how to affect and make people change their lives.
As I mentioned earlier, my brain never stops pooping out ideas of work. And never will I let my creativity die.
I hope all of you have had a great day or will have.
Never stop dreaming and remember that the universe is your only limit and that you are the only one that can stop yourself from reaching your dreams.
Now I need to go to sleep.
Talk to you more tomorrow.
Never forget to sleep!
