Our story starts in the early 1900’s.
Einstein had just graduated the Swiss University of Fashion Design and he was ready to embark on his artistic path of textile, embroidery and red carpet fashion wear.
This story line might come as fake to many, but sure raises a lot of questions on what would have happened if Einstein had taken the wrong career path, ending up in fashion school? More importantly, it pushes us to wonder how many Pikasso’s, Steve Jobs’, Sigmund Freud’s and Coco Chanel’s is our society misleading into the wrong university majors?
Junior Chamber International, also known as JCI, is an international non-profit organization working hand in hand with the United Nations to transform Lebanon into an ecosystem providing best education for everyone!
JCI benefits from its strong pillars in more than 120 countries around the globe, its network of 200 000 members globally and its active presence in Beirut for the last decade, to establish and promote the After School What’s Up fair which took place for the first time this year at the UNESCO palace.
The event witnessed an overflowing influx of young bright minds from different Lebanese regions attentively listening to inspiring stories by great experienced speakers from both private and non-profit sectors.
“Most of us, including myself, when we were back in school we asked ourselves “What’s next?”. This project is all about showing our youth that there are many different ways of discovering where to go from there, and we are hoping this fair would grow and take place every year building for a great start for changing the world!”
How YOU can help!
Remember, the more people joining the further we can advance JCI Lebanon’s mission for better education for our children, so get your buddy, your flirt or your family (Free entrance for toddlers, yay!).
Many may argue that a person meant to change the world will always find his or her way to it through life’s invisible hands always pushing us towards what we are destined to achieve, however it is our duty as a society to minimize the struggle and sacrifices while unleashing the talent of impactful individuals that will make our world a better place.
