Each one of you has your own platform. Do not let the trappings here fool you. Mine is a stage in a studio, yours is wherever you are with your own reach, however small or however large that reach is.
Maybe it’s 20 people, maybe it’s 30 people, 40 people, your family, your friends, your neighbors, your classmates, your classroom, your co-workers. Wherever you are, that is your platform, your stage, your circle of influence. That is your talk show, and that is where your power lies.

It’s 8: 36 PM on day 310 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a hotdog for breakfast, watch a few WordPress tutorial videos – I wanted to know what those widgets in my dashboard were for and I have to say I was AMAZED you can create your own chatroom and do all sorts of other stuff…I LOVE WordPress 🙂 –tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch TV, feed myself oranges for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
Yesterday I was watching an episode of The Tyra Banks Show which focused on her B.I.O (Beauty Inside and Out) Campaign that aims to expand the definition of beauty for women around the world and it was only as I was watching that I realized how narrow the definition of beauty was so in the spirit of creating a change I am asking you to leave comments on this post telling me what you love about the way you look I LOVE my bone structure it’s different but it’s totally unique to me. Are you using your circle of influence to make this world a better place?
Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://twitter.com/Nisha360
If you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. Please help her do an amazing thing. http://bit.ly/hC7vOu
Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
