The Benefits of an American Education…Why You Should Reach for the Stars

American University Education SystemIn recent weeks I was granted a scholarship to go on and do my further education in the United States of America – permitting the Universities over there accepted me, and for me, that was unbelievable.

There was another girl in the process with five jobs (two of which were her own business), another who spoke three languages and another who played four instruments. But despite such amazing competition – they saw something in me.

And that’s the reason why I’m writing this post today, because I’m sure ‘they’ will find something in you too. The world outside our doors is full of unbelievable experiences. But unbelievable is not the same word as impossible and I’m writing this post today because I want you to believe that anything is possible.

You may be much older than the ‘further education stage’; you may not even want to go into further education, but that’s not what this post is about. This post is about you and why you should assess all possible (or seemingly impossible) directions, before heading down a certain route.

As the exam season draws to a close, the younger generation may be wondering what the point of it all is? To spend two years getting a piece of paper with a sheet of grades on… It’s okay to wonder that. Questioning yourself is the only way that you’ll define that direction, but never question, taking the leap.

I applied on a whim and now I’ve got a scholarship. What’s a better time than now for you to reach for the stars? » Read more..

Don’t Dwell, Just Figure Out What’s Next… A Summer Lesson


It’s an important time of year for students and adults alike. Students are on the verge of finishing their summer exams and we’re all leaving the winter behind (although it doesn’t always feel like it here in the UK!) and heading towards a happy summer. But today I bring a lesson to you all, students or not… don’t dwell, just figure out what’s next.

Steve Jobs once said, “I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell for too long. Just figure out what’s next.” And that message has always stuck with me. Just because the wintry exam season is over, this is not the end until next year, but simply the end of this chapter instead.

Inspires Me: Human Past, Present & Future

Moon, Earth, Space Panaram, Human Civilizations FutureI watched a video from Carl Sagan a few weeks ago and with it came a flashback of inspiration. It’s always marvelled me how the human race works together to progress as a group and this video, for me, just brings back to home the species that we all do in fact come from and the purpose that we all as humans have in common.

We conquered the land, seas and skies. We conquered the world as one and now we’re just at the beginnings of our venture out in to space. So should we still be fighting wars? Should we still be arguing, complaining, thinking only about ourselves? No, because when you think of the bigger picture, those little things matter no more, but by holding on to them so dear as we do, we’re only hold ourselves back.

I’ve wrote about my inspiration from the thought of being a single influencer of a much bigger team of our civilization before. I wrote about it quite extensively in my first ‘Inspires Me’ post about Maersk here.

So I shan’t repeat myself again, but if you have a spare moment to watch this video from Carl Sagan and consider our human purpose in this world, then I highly recommended you do! It’s really quite marvellous and inspiring to think how far we’ve come and yet how far we still have to go as team. » Read more..

Jamie Dunmore: My Call For Humanity [Video]

An eye opening spoken word piece, covering the serious topics of our humanity and our future. I think poetry aside, Jamie highlights some really key issues facing our world today in his video, but more importantly he covers the many issues facing ourselves to.

So take a listen and think. What does Jamie say that rings true in me? Because humanity and humans are facing issues like never before, but nothing is happening to change. However, we know that change is the first step towards future success, so think, what changes should you begin to make?

Take a listen and don’t forget to let me know your thoughts in the comments below!


Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller: The Ultimate Shipping Magnate… Life & Lessons

Maersk Mc-Kinney MollerMærsk Mc-Kinney Møller was the greatest shipping magnate of the 20th Century, moving unthinkable numbers of containers and goods around the world and playing a revolutionary part in the invisible globalisation of the world by sea.

I’ve always been inspired by Maersk Line and loved how it plays such a big part in the progress of our world. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Maersk is working and yet only a very few percent of the world will ever know it.

I once watched a corporate video called We Are Mearsk on YouTube. In the video Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller was featured and I found what he said both inspirational and true, and although it was spoke in relation to the business, I think it’s completely relatable to life to.

So in this post I’d like to share with you the life of Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, the son of the Maersk founder, A.P. Møller and discuss some of the many life lessons he and his incredible life have to give. » Read more..

London SkylineWhy is change so important for potential world changers?

The world is full of opportunities – but you didn’t need me to tell you that. What you do need me to tell you however is that these opportunities are available, not just for you but, for the people around you too. You might love these people. You might hate these people. These people might even be your unknown competition. But the truth of the matter is that opportunity is out there for anyone to grab. So what does this have to do with change and location? » Read more..
