With Charan Kamal Singh Parmar, Director and Co-founder of Pax Mauritius Ltd.
However in July 2015, we had the opportunity to meet the first women President of Mauritius, Mrs. Ameenah Gurib-Fakim at President House of Mauritius to discuss role of youth in developing countries. We want to thank the first lady for her valuable advice and inputs and would love share few points she shared with us that could help every young person in the world:
1. Youth of any country has an opportunty to co-create positive change in their repsective country and we must make the most of this opportunity.
2. When we are young we are free to do what we believe and co-create something that can change many lives. Never shy away from your beliefs becuase you to do what you love, one must follow what they believe in.
3. Experinece the world while exploring it. I can speak seven languages, luckily Hindi is one of them. So we can defeinitely speak in Hindi: Aap konse seher se aai hai ? (Which town in India have you come from?)
4. Always learn, Life is long and you will win on some of your beliefs while you may fail miserably on some but the most important thing is to learn and grow yourself & others around you into a better people, for the world needs more of that.
5. Education is the most powerful tool to co-create change but education without experience is not enough, We have so many educated people in India and Maurtius yet we face problem of unemployement. The most important thing is to apply your education/learing into the real world.
6. Always give back to the world that has given you because when you give back to the world you get much more than you could have ever imagined.
7.Be adaptive to change, We all must be prepared to embrace change and drive positives from the same.
She also spoke highly for Prime Minister of India, Mr. Modi and how his visit to Mauritius on their Independence day will further build strong bilateral realtions with India. We also invited her to India and hope to see her soon.
