#009 – Moses on How Following Your Heart Continuously Builds into Something Greater

 

On this episode I speak with Moses Gashirabake. Moses is truly an example of what it means to be a go getter, and to go above and beyond in all that you do. He is very involved in both the Canadian and Rwandan communities on top of his demanding work schedule, and I can’t wait for you to hear more about him. I basically want to be like him when I grow up 🙂

*forgive this recording, I was still figuring out my sound*

04:40 – How his experience growing up as a refugee in Kenya influenced his career choice as a lawyer, and his realization that a law degree is a tool

08:50 – The need to share and open up a dialogue, and why following your heart is still the way to go

[I knew I wanted to become who I am today, but I really had to seek advice. It’s not a destination, it’s a constant need. We need to constantly seek knowledge… – Moses]

13:25 – We talk about business law, philanthropy law and what they actually entail. Then what he loves, and finds challenging about his work

20:25 – Moses tells us how he got involved in Canadian community work, and how small actions add up when you do the work you are interested in

29:35 – How the Canadian Race Relations Foundation started and the work that they do, and how it started with the Japanese Community

36:55 – How the International Rwanda Youth for Development (IRYD) came about after a visit to Rwanda

42:20 – Words of advice and lessons learned from ‘failures’

[We can use what we have, however little, to get a lot of what we don’t have. And along the way we are helping people, we are being happy, we are creating change, inspiring other people and living life to the fullest – Moses]
