School talks are a prospect we feel can reach out to the tomorrow’s generation – another “small step but giant leap” in the making. On our conquests to various schools we have tried to empower and better the students by talking about being passionate, working smart/professional and even being independent when need be. A topic that has extensively been explored is career choices as it is known to be very crucial and tricky for students, with all the various factors on its weighing scale. Being extraordinary and achieving the highest/best possibility out there have been common themes in many of the talks. These talks have also become opportunities to allow us to reminisce and shed our experiences of school to a large audience in the hopes to also generate learning experiences. Talks touching on aspects of research, philanthropy and self-empowerment have been planned for. The “talking” approach has been shunned and more student interaction and relevant analogies have been encouraged for our visits.
The talks on a higher level give us the chance to improve our public speaking, child interaction and mentor-ship skills so that when the time comes and we’re face to face with those less fortunate, such as the refugees and orphans in our up and ongoing projects, we’re improved individuals and ready.
