Insightful quotes from a book that explores the idea of showing how the opportunities available to an individual can dramatically impact their life trajectory. Sukhjit emphasizes that while we may all start in the same shoes, our paths can diverge depending on the doors that are open to us. From his perspective, this means that we must work to ensure that everyone has access to the same opportunities, regardless of their background or circumstances.
Press and Media in Civic Engagement
The press plays a crucial role in spreading the message of civic engagement. Sukhjit collaborates with news media to amplify voices and stories that may otherwise go unheard, shining a light on the critical issues that affect our communities.
By providing diverse perspectives and fostering informed discussions, the press and media can contribute to the development of a healthy and vibrant civic culture, where individuals are empowered to participate in their communities through volunteerism and make a positive impact.
