"Give me a place to stand, and I will move the Earth - Archimedes"
Hello! Bonjour! Nin Hao!
I'm Rowan, a 23 year-old MSc Entrepreneurship & International Business student, originally from London but currently studying in the fair city of Nottingham, UK. I'm a former psychology graduate who is passionate about people and what makes them tick, as well as having an innate curiosity for creativity and innovative thinking (hence the switch-up for my masters degree!) This bizarre blend of psychology and business has turned me into a creative yet analytical thinker who gets his kicks from imagining new and interesting ways of solving problems.
On the side I like to swim, organize events, travel (the more the better), DJ, service and customize Technics turntables, read, cook tasty treats from around the world, learn to code and socialize.
Thanks Guy! I hadn't heard of Handcrafting Justice before, its a nice idea. Exploring the potential of this project as a social enterprise could definitely be an interesting direction to take it. Monetizing an existing craft or hobby could give it a greater purpose to the elderly person. Perhaps using a portion of the revenue to fuel the reach of the mentoring project beyond those with craft/hobby skills to those more in need of companionship/mentoring would be something worth investigating.
