31 Mar Using your own voice to express yourself
This past week I got a message from one of our students after he finished giving a presentation abroad, which made me very happy. Eduardo Srur is a very respected and well known Brazilian artist, who spreads out very important messages through his art around the world.
He was invited to bring his “Jaguar drinking water” art piece to the ‘Aqua’ exhibition in Geneva with works by 32 artists from around the world, according to the curators, an alert for the preservation of the resource, which should be a priority in the 21st century. If you ever go to Sao Paulo, make sure to stop by his art studio so you can learn a bit from his powerful art messages.
We were lucky to get to help him practice his speech in English. He could have done it in Portuguese with the help of translators. It would have been “easier” for him. But he decided to invest his little free time in preparing it in English, so he could “use his own voice” to express himself. This makes such an incredible difference, doesn’t it?
It makes me proud of working with people like him. Hard workers who sacrifice their little free time when they could be with family and friends, to improve their English. It’s not easy. But he did it. Congratulations Edu! I am proud of you and all the other people out there who are investing in better communicating with the world.
