Breaking Pageant Stereotypes

BY HABIB NOORBHAI
@ VOL 48 ON MAY 08, 2018

We often place limits on what we can do and what we have the potential of achieving. We often underestimate how far one can go and the ultimatum of terminating or continuing. In every aspect of life, there is something called Stamina, not just in sport.

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.

"It’s never going to work!”

BY DAN ACHER
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 31, 2018

That’s the answer I often get when I present my ideas to city councils. I like to inject a little craziness in our day to day lives to bring people together, and challenge the preconception that people in cities are too individualistic and closed off. Because time and time again, I have found that people from all walks of life and cultures are just waiting for opportunities to get together and connect.
