I started actively volunteering when I was 17. At that time, I thought that to make a difference, one had to make a big splash. That you had to be visible.
Over the years though, I have come to appreciate that that's not always true. You can make as much difference in the world by quietly working in the background.
I guess I have come to appreciate that the kind of leader I am is the one who will go down to the ground and work her behind off for a cause she believes in, and work with the people. I will never be well-known and I will never be worshipped, but I'm okay with that.
Because, sometimes, the changes in the causes you care about don't come from a splash in the river. Sometimes, they come from a ripple.
