“I have always been drawn to the work at Seeds of Peace as it is centered upon seeing all facets of humanity from a position of strength, and not deficit. At Seeds, there is an understanding that we are a global, human family. That is because dialogue is the very core of the work here. Dialogue is transformative—it has the ability to reset power structures and invites individuals and communities to reimagine their reality. What could be more magical?”
