Deeply inspired by Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project, I decided to launch the Building Bridges Project.
Waking up everyday with the energy that drives you to achieve your dreams, finding meaning in work and life, feeling you are living for something greater than yourself, devoting your life to a cause that is dear to our heart: people call it being passionate.
Passion exists in every one of us. My own passion is Music and even more, Violin. This passion exists because I was lucky to have masters, parents and friends that helped me discover it, but also nurture and develop it. Lucky as well to come across a number of wonderful artists and passionate leaders across very different fields who have been a great source of inspiration. Musicians, teachers, scientists, chefs, politicians, journalists, with one common denominator: an unsatiable passion for life.
I want to share what I received from them.
I want to share all these moments, conversations, hands shaken, eye contacts, which inspired me so much and helped me live my own passion.
Through notes taken from my conversations with those passionate leaders, I will explore the structure of their lives, highlight their similarities, and show how much they feed each other, across fields, for intellectual and emotional survival.
I hope this will help other people find some keys to their passion.
I welcome your feedback and perspective and want to keep this as a dialogue. You can reach me through the contact form which is below.
See you along the way!
