Meet our new Amnbassador, Sana Khalid. The past 5 years, through her social enterprise, Minerva, she has helped hundreds of individuals design great careers and introduced many others to meaningful hobbies. A significant portion of her work revolves around helping bring out the best in people; she helps people develop personal brands that shine. One of the key things she stresses on when working on values and beliefs of one’s personal brands is the ability to empathize and accept and appreciate other people for who they are – something I believe is important in developing a culture of tolerance. I dream of a more tolerant, more peaceful world; and hope that this initiative will help do the same and that's the reason, I'm onbaord.
