Here are four moments that made one of the best days in my life. I arranged these pictures in a comic strip manner as it captures the evolution of my interaction with Jack Ma, a business magnate and a philanthropist, most know him as the co-founder and former executive chairman of Alibaba Group, I know him as my inspiration and idol.
I had the chance to get real close to him. I asked him a question about his view on education while sharing about my work, and he secretly validated OWN Academy! When he suggested to take a group selfie picture, guess who had the selfie stick? ;) Because I chose to sit directly in front of him during the sharing, I was also able to be right next to him in the selfie!
All that makes me happy but if I were to go deeper. My biggest takeaway from this exclusive experience at the World Economic Forum is that when you meet the leaders of the world, you realize they are not that different from you. Their success is only the result of hard work, compassion and time. Patience and a strong belief that no one person is too small to make a difference. You can do whatever you set your mind to do, the only obstacle is you.
Truth is, if they can do it, I can do it and YOU can do it too. What do you think?
