When visiting Sierra Leone, Africa in 2013, I witnessed an abundance of generosity, compassion, connectedness and ability to live in the present – all while surrounded by material scarcity. This experience left me with more questions than answers and accelerated my own discovery journey. The people I met had clear priorities, there was a simplicity and a sense of joy – something I wasn’t expecting to uncover. These learning’s left me humbled, inspired and on a quest to keep learning. I’ll never forget the darkness in the sky as I made my first descent into this country in the early morning, I couldn’t imagine a country with limited light – a darkness I hadn’t experienced before. When I left on my ascent home there was an enlightenment I experienced as I knew this country held answers and held a source of light that was brighter than what I experienced living in a developed country.
