Gladys: Any words of wisdom to those people who have the same passion as you have? Lara: I can say that let your values guide you because values ties with identity and so regardless of what you choose to do, be a changemaker in your own way. To have the value of knowing how to help, just listen to that voice. There will be challenges and I experienced a lot of them. There was even a time when I was so broke and the tribe was the one feeding us because we had an overbud- get. I cried because of that. But if all went down, just hold on to the thought that this will amount to something even though you can’t see it right now. If you have that passion for something, somehow the universe will conspire and will eventually make it happen. DONATE NOW www.batakcratf.org/donate 36
