The Power of One: We are the Change we Seek! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

 —By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Can one person really make a difference? Can an individual change the world by doing good?

We hear the wonderful words of inspiration from some of the leading thinkers of our time. Many believe they can lift mountains if they put their minds to it. It is not rocket science to think that one person can change the world if that person applies him or herself to the task ahead.
