“Joseph showed me the power certain sacrifices have to help people live better lives.” Over the past few days at #ObamaLeaders, Joseph and Austin have forged a powerful connection. Joseph’s work in Korea supports North Korean refugees. Austin’s work at the University of Guam helps the island transition towards a more sustainable future. But they share the same source of strength—their kids back home.
"Rejoice in this opportunity to change the world. It's a great privilege to be alive and have the possibility of helping somebody or making things a little bit better." @BarackObama's encouraging words to hundreds of #ObamaLeaders from across the Asia Pacific.
A shared passion can spark a connection. For #ObamaLeaders Chloe and Cheryl, it's sustainability. Throughout their careers in New Zealand and Singapore, these two women have worked towards zero-carbon, climate-positive business practices. Today in Kuala Lumpur, they had a chance to share their experiences and learn from each other.
No one changes the world alone. This week we’ll be highlighting some of the most inspiring connections taking place at #ObamaLeaders—like Jordan and Angie. While they work in different sectors in different countries, today they bonded over their passion for solving problems, taking risks, and disrupting the status quo to make the world a better place.
Today and every day, we’re thankful to be part of our Chicago community. Happy Thanksgiving!
