Through this campaign, children from 55 countries shared global cultural diversity.

We, as the youth, have a huge potential to turn the table and change the course of our future.

As children, we need to change our mindset and enhance our understanding on the current scenario, to become more eco-conscious towards preserving our cultural heritage and protecting our Mother Earth.

Through my campaign and my books, I am doing my bit to raise awareness as I take it as a way forward, to connect with people across religion, region and race.

I believe that, ‘Sustainability is the key to a better future.’

My mission is to collaborate with as many schools, institutions, and organizations, to connect with children of my generation, so that we youth, can seize the boundaries of our nations, put aside our differences and come together first, as humans and then as the future of this planet.
