Quotes From This Episode

  • "So that’s when the meeting of all our senses and science come together. And we realize that this isn’t about politics, this is about humanity and survival."
  • "This is where I think science meeting indigenous wisdom is really important. Indigenous wisdom really was, has always been, based on storytelling...our capacity to tell stories that speak to our minds, our hearts, and our souls."
  • "Coming from a country in Africa, which is one of the smallest, and most fragile post-conflict countries in the world... we have to imagine everything. So what we're looking for aren't managers, we're looking for leaders that have the capacity to dream and to execute their dreams into reality. And so that is all about leadership and transformation."
