The idea for the You Live 2 Inspire Movement came to me after I had been asking myself the same question time and time again. Why am I here and what is my purpose? The answer may have been obvious, I had been involved in music and visual arts for most of my life and yet I was always looking for something with deeper meaning. I had been living in Bali for a few months practicing meditation and yoga when the answer finally popped into my head seemingly out of nowhere. It came in the form of a phrase “You Live To Inspire”. A little phrase with big meaning, as in that moment I realised that my life’s purpose is not conclusive in just furthering my own development, but moreso in encouraging the people around me to reconnect with their authentic selves and fearlessly pursue their passions, using the way I choose to lead my life as an example. 

Through a series of personally transformative life experiences I've come to believe that whatever it is that you choose to devote your life to, your calling is to live your life in authenticity and alignment with your highest self (with love and integrity towards yourself and others), in a way that inspires others to also strive for and reach their highest potential. A life well lived is one where we encourage and inspire one another to live consciously in service of not only ourselves, but of others, facilitating positive change all around us.

#YouLive2Inspire was born as an embodiment of these concepts. It's a movement and an international community of like minded individuals who believe in expanding their own horizons and while doing so, giving back to the community around them whether it be through volunteer work or transformative workshops, keeping us all connected.

Visiting Orphanages & Children's Community Centres in Bali, Indonesia

While in Bali, I had the pleasure of connecting with and contributing at the Permata Hati Orpahan Centre in Ubud. The centre welcomes children of all ages who have lost a parent or a family member. They have created a beautiful community which fosters artistic and musical talent. I really bonded with the kids there, giving vocal and language lessons and can’t wait to visit them again on my next trip to Bali.

Together with my friends I also visited The Vidya Guna Orphanage and Centre for Underprivileged and Special Needs Kids outside of Ubud and spent a day painting murals with the children there. The kids were so incredibly sweet, affectionate and creative, it was one of the most transformative experiences I have had to date.
