This is THE INSPIRING HOUR of your week. The Two Jess(es) have the great honor of speaking with #MeWe International founder, Mohsin Mohi Ud Din, who at many points, leaves them both speechless, as he shares his tireless efforts to help refugees discover the crucial importance of changing their narrative through the art of story telling and communication. Mohsin believes that the ability to communicate is a human right that belongs to EVERYBODY, and that the stories we tell ourselves are what we will become. He has committed his life to serving those who have been told for generations, that they have no voice, and through innovative techniques, backed by neuroscience and experience, he continues to dispel the arrested narratives that follow all of us, throughout our lives.
With beautiful thoughts like assembling a list based on the alchemy of our heroes, and passionately declaring we have the right to change our narrative whenever we want, Mohsin reminds us that that our self expression, our stories, our art, our words, are indeed, the highest form of hope.
