Grant on listening to others and seeing what truly unites us:
One advantage I get from talking to people around the world is that I experience that no matter where you are, no matter where you live, people still want the same thing for themselves, for their communities, and for their kids.
Whatever it may be their level of passion is the same. Whether they’re from India, Southeast Asia, Delaware, Toronto, or Mexico City, wherever it may be, everybody’s problems are pretty similar.
It could be dealing with mental health or dealing with economic issues, although different places approach problems and issues differently there are always people trying to solve them.
We’re unified in trying to solve problems together on all continents and cities around the world.
