A friend of my asked me to become a member of the board for FC Rosengård - a football club with an amazing social responsibility in an area of Sweden with great integration challenges. Reluctantly I agreed, thinking that I "really didn't have the time" and all I really wanted to do was solve my own problems first. But I quickly realized something quite remarkable: by helping others you often end up helping yourself.
Through my work with FC Rosengård I have:
- gained a new perspective on my own challenges.
- had the honor of working with incredible people who do so much for other people without expecting anything back.
- established a new valuable network with other members of the board - people I today am proud to call my friends.
- gained insight in to a world that I would have never been in contact with otherwise - a world that allows me to appreciate the life I live only 20 minutes away from Rosengård
So give joy - get joy!
It simply makes zense!
