The Power of Bravery

Hi BRAVE humans!

For our first Learn 4 Change post, I wanted to bring you all something (or rather someone) that was empowering. Someone that you could look at, and even if you couldn't relate, they could still have an impact on your life. Someone that could inspire you to be a better person, and look at your life differently. 

As I was scrolling through CNN, I found a section titled "CNN's Heroes". I thought this was a great way to highlight people who have done amazing things for their community and to showcase people who otherwise might not get any recognition. Low and behold, I found this amazing lady named Rosie Mashale, affectionately known as "Mama Rosie".

Mama Rosie is a former schoolteacher, known for starting a free daycare center, after noticing children in her community scavenging for food in a dumpster. After a decade of running this center, she considered retiring. However, the universe had something even bigger planned for her.

I know that normally we feature people for Humans of BRAVE, but I felt like Mama Rosie was also someone we could learn from. I feel like she's teaching us all lessons on what it means to be BRAVE and what it means to care and love for everyone, no matter who they are to you. 

Check out the source article by scrolling to the bottom of this post, and watch the videos accompanied. I have a good feeling that after watching, you'll be asking yourself, "What can I do, to make this world a better place? What can I do to be BRAVE?"

Stay awesome,
