John Fitzgerald Kennedy, former US president and global icon, once said, “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.”
With a rapidly increasing global population and a world constantly going after the next big-ticket item without caring about others, social problems are bound to crop up.
As we march relentlessly towards our own perceived happiness, we forget about the people left behind. That’s why such quotes remind us that there are people who need help, and that we can create a difference by lending a helping hand, be it big or small.
30-year-old Mohamed Fareez Mohamed Fahmy and 24-year-old Lim Si Yu are two such individuals who hope to make a difference in the world we live in today through their social service professions.
