At the Social Good Summit I spent a lot of time in the digital media lounge, blogging and live tweeting as speaker after speaker spoke about the issues affecting our world today. I wrote and posted on various social media platforms and listened intently as people spoke about various innovations. About 90% of the innovations that were mentioned involved technology and I realized that technology, and social good are inseparable. The challenges and dynamics of this day and age have coalesced into a fitting reliance on technology, but what exactly is the role of technology in social good and what has technology done at a practical level?
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard
Yes my 18months #LifeTransforming, #Amazing fellowship in the United States has come to an end, the fellowship was life changing and a blessing all the way.
I am indeed a better person now, I have grown so much and well equipped to face my world and bring about a positive change.
I will miss my Fellow Fellows, my host organization, the amazing Atlas Corps team, and the numerous friends and families I met during this journey.
Since I heard that one of nurse who were infected to Ebola was in Bethesda for her treatment, I was also seized with fear.
Quite recently, South Korea was supposed to host an international conference with guests from West African countries. So the residents of the host city, Busan which is second biggest city of South Korea are scared. Massive public opinion were uproarious against the national and Busan city government and ask them to cancel or postpone the conference.
Have you ever wondered how your dreams change with your thought patterns?
Not too often, but I do get these glum dreams, where I am walking on the road alone, it is dark and blue, and then suddenly someone starts following me. I try to run my best and I am breathing heavily. I try to dodge away from the dark image, but soon get cornered and helpless. Then a hero within me rises and starts fighting with the dark image till I conquer. Sigh! And I wake up. Not at all a pleasant dream, but when I wake up I do ponder, that if I am not a runner or a marital artist in real life, why is it that in my dream I become my own hero?
To get the feel, and feel truly connected at a place, take about a year or a little less in my life’s tendency. In other words, my life gets much richer when the amount of time passes. DC is particularly restless compared to other places I’ve lived, yet, these days I think I finally got the feel.
A truly meaningful life is nonetheless than a blessing because when people ask you what do you do, they really want to know what contribution do you make in the betterment of society, what change you brings in the lives of other. At that point, I believe the answer should not be like, I am trainer, I am manager, I am cook, I am xyz.
