🎤 "If you don't have role models, be a role model!"
💪 In today’s episode, you will be meeting Yama, a Dutch-Afghan changemaker with many lives: from creating his own social startup (recycling car tyres to produce punching bags) to lecturing R&D at university, launching an inclusive investment fund, and much more!
