Day 25

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek – Barack Obama.

It’s 5:28 PM on day 25 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to feed myself Oats for breakfast and Whole-Grain bread and Mango Achar for lunch – I decided not to eat as much rice my dad’s side of the family has a history of Diabetes and High-Blood Pressure – practiced holding a spoon and folding a handkerchief with my right-hand     

Kevin – my ten-year-old brother – was watching me raise money for my Clean Water For All  Campaign when he asked “Why are you doing this? Isn’t this what world leaders are for?” At first I was speechless and didn’t know how to respond but then it occurred to me that I became a world leader the moment I stopped being a part of the problem and started a part of the solution. Fight for something you believe in and become the leader that you were born to be – it’s never too early or too late. Start today!!! 🙂
