I am proud to say that I treat every Enactus team (both the ones I have met and the ones I am yet to meet) with the respect I would give a family member.
Family is the most important part of our life, whether we are distantly connected across continents or intimately connected across towns and cities.
Collectively every Enactus team shares a set of common values, a meaningful mission and a belief that entrepreneurial action empowers people in need to build long term employability and enterprise skills. We truly all share an unbreakable bond that will always bind us together as we move forward.
That’s the one thing most of us can count on in our family, undeniable, everlasting love and support as we make our way in the world.
Before Enactus I didn’t believe there such an incredible community of young people who believe in being a dedicated altruistic individual existed. I simply assumed that the majority of young people out there were too demotivated, frustrated or even aware of global issues to care about making the difference.
The moment I joined Enactus Leeds Met I felt like I had arrived home. Even before attending the Enactus UK training weekend where I got the chance to meet other incredible Enactus teams I could already sense this was going to be something special.
And now I have been involved with the organisation for nearly five months I can’t help but believe that is still the case today.
American inventor Charles Kettering once said “There exist limitless opportunities in every industry. Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier.”
This quote perfectly sums up the Enactus movement.
Enactus is about enabling open minds to congregate together (through each Enactus university group), identify the biggest needs that people in need face (such as homelessness, lack of access to employment opportunities, victims of domestic violence who suffer depression) and then commit to the belief that anything is possible if everyone works together to take action.
In my opinion it doesn’t get any better then this. Enactus will always be the project I work the hardest for and the project I champion to become a massive success.
And for every success and failure along the way I will always have my Enactus family to support me.
