Coming Soon to Singapore: GenJuice

Feb 19, 2010

Earlier this year, Arielle Patrice Scott (an awesome young lady who you should definitely check out) gathered a group of driven young people, fora meetup where they talked about their personal brands. It’s since evolved into a meetup for them to support each other and help each other achieve what they want to do. That meet-up has since become GenJuice, a meetup for young driven people to help each other reach specific professional goals.

Arielle explains more about GenJuice in this video:

When she first told me about it, I was really excited about the idea. Using social media to help young people achieve their dreams – that’s something I really believe in and want to be a part of. That’s what I love the most about social media. For me social media is not really about helping big companies market their products (don’t get me wrong, it’s useful for that, but that’s not where my passion lies). To me, social media is a great platform for individuals to achieve their dreams.

So, I’ve decided to start a GenJuice in Singapore. I think it’s something that could be really great for young people here, and I’m really looking forward to it.

If it sounds like something that you’d be interested in, I’d love to have you come. You can view the event details (and RSVP) on the Facebook event, but basically, it’s on 6 March, 6pm, at Hackerspace Singapore.

Looking forward to seeing you there. =).

There is Hope

A short, simple and yet really powerful video, that I just had to share.

To all the other Gen-Ys and youths out there: Don’t listen to the likes of Mark Bauerlein. Our generation can make as much of a difference as we want to. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

We are definitely not a lost generation. Far from it. You can change the world, if you want to.

Reaching the Unreachable.

There is no doubt Obama has had impressive success among youth, a demographic most candidates struggle to awaken from political apathy.

I’m no expert in politics, but there’s a great lesson here.

Nobody is truly unreachable. And if you’re able to reach those your competitors can’t, you’re very likely to succeed.
