An Inspiring Story

I stumbled upon a NY Times article about Jacob Mach. He is one of “The Lost Boys of Sudan”.

This is an amazing story about survival (parentless while young and becoming a refugee), grit (finding his way to the U.S. and seeking to improve his economic prospects as an adult) and hope (he has amazing strength and perseverance).

I love reading stories like this. In my job, I work with people who tend to have options: they’re looking to start a company, join a start-up, and change the world. This story, though, helps me stay grounded. There are tons of people out there who are struggling. They don’t have options.

I hope we remember them this holiday season and give our time, talent or treasure.

Below, is a short video of Jacob (or, click here).
