Helsinki, Finland

Teachers should be heroes of today and I want to make any teenager feel that s/he can be a changemaker! Why? Because each of us has been affected by a teacher or an adult in our early years and I am not an exception. My name is Kamilla Sultanova, I am entepreneur, TEDxspeaker and education enthusiast. I advance gender equality, empower potential and seek lasting social impact. I was born and raised in Uzbekistan and have lived and worked for the last 16 years in the Nordics: 12 years in Denmark and 4 years in Finland. I believe volunteering and mentoring are going to be highly important to promote 21st century skills along with digital skills - to find meaning and purpose in life. I initiated Global Dignity NGO's Finnish branch, which in under 3 years have reached 3000 students in Helsinki via high level speaker events on dignity, courage to dream and self-compassion. #globaldignityfi #EYL40
