Inspirational video

As you may or may not know, my blog content is more than 50% user generated by readers and subscribers. It means that I get access to literally hundreds of submissions and contributions per year that I would never find on my own. First because I wouldn’t be searching for it and second, I don’t have the breadth and scope to find such a wide range and variety of things that are out there.

Today’s video was sent to me by a client, FinPacific who provides financial treasury management software solutions to medium and large businesses. They have a corporate culture based on authenticity, congruency and honesty that is truly remarkable. It did not surprise me that they would have come across this incredibly inspirational video of a 15 year-old girl. You simply have to start watching and you’ll find yourself mesmerised by her wisdom, maturity and eloquence. She can teach us all a few life lessons!

Additional notes on the video:

http://www.INKtalks.com Like Voltaire, she believes a shipwreck gives us an opportunity to sing in the life boats. Little Aisha Chaudhary, the first INK Youth Fellow, teaches us a big lesson even as she is battling a life-threatening medical condition. All of 15, Aisha has taught herself to paint, take pictures, run with her dog and dance at her cousin’s wedding, not just once but twice. Aisha learned art at the American Embassy School. “You live every moment twice, once in your mind and once when you actually live it,” she said to a standing ovation.

ABOUT AISHA CHAUDHARY: Fifteen year-old Aisha Chaudhary was born with an immune deficiency disorder and overcame a predicted life expectancy of only one year to have become an accomplished artist today. Despite a serious lung disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis, her persistent optimism, extraordinary maturity in the face of impossible odds, and calm perspective on life’s challenges have been an inspiration to many.
