Mayra Ivelisse commented on Hacker Hub (Urban Ed Academy)

Love the idea! Will Hacker Hub educate the young male or will it only consit of housing for future male teachers? Either way I think meeting a persons basic necessities, as taking vulnerable students out of the streets, is the first step to help people transform their lifes.

Best of luck!

Love the idea of empowering women <3! Have you thought about how to break the barrier men will have against this empowerment? I think by having men buyin the idea by showing them what empowering women entails and what other things women will be able to contribute to society would be amazing. Changing a lifestyle of a certain community is huge and is completly possible but it needs to be done from the inside, without them feeling they are being imposed to act in a certain manner but for them to "realize" the benefits empowering women bring.

Best of luck!


Mayra Ivelisse commented on Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest

My mother is a therapist and what she has found most effective with her clients is teaching through games is best. Kids usually excercise and practice their skills and coping skills without paying attention to them that then they can transffer to real life scenarions!
