Have you ever seen or read something that has really moved you and made you want to do something worthwhile? For many of us that feeling of inspiration rarely translates into action. We often want to do something, but don’t know how or what we can do. That wasn’t the case with John Stanlake.
When John felt disillusioned with his job in 2009 he took steps to do something more meaningful. Over the past few years he has been volunteering across the world, helping young people to build a better future. He finds real inspiration and joy from sharing and connecting with youngsters.
John is not one of life’s loud extroverts. He is a quietly spoken and sincere young man who’s patience and presence speaks volumes. He has an incredible skill of writing – painting vivid and compelling stories through his blog.
Whilst working as a teacher in Rwanda John’s students asked him to make sure the world didn’t forget the 1994 genocide. He has made it his mission to share their story with the world – this is John’s story.
