At age 12, Craig Kielburger set out the change the world. He founded the organization Free the Children in 7th grade and committed to working on solutions to stop injustices and atrocities towards children.
When asked in an interview on CBS in 1996: “What made you think you could do something about it?” He responded with the most insparationally entrepreneurial line I have heard from any adult in a long time. He said, “originally I didn’t think I could really, but the only way your ever going to figure out is by trying.” So pure and perfect. Self doubt followed by the drive to confront that doubt through determination and passion.
