What would you tell yourself at 18?

BY SOPHIE JOANS
@ VOL 48 ON MAY 08, 2018

At 18, clueless about how to tackle adulthood, Sophie Joans began to stop people on the street and ask them: If you could tell you at 18 one phrase of life advice, what would you say?

After collecting thousands of quotes, from street sweepers to celebrities, Sophie printed some of them onto A7 cards. She continues to collect quotes, but now invites people to pick a card without looking, and 'see what the universe wants them to know'. On starting this project, the magic was watching people as they tried to condense their whole lives into one phrase of advice. Now it is also amazing watching people react to the card they chose, and how it is so often relevant to their lives.

The aim of Habib Noorbhai's inspiring, enthused, and motivated talk will be geared towards what and how you can see through your desired goals, accomplishments and targets.
