Peacemaker Profiles – The lack of empathy is the root of all evil.

At a young age, Amit’s speech impediment made him acutely aware of the harm of bullying. My Name, My Story is a movement that Amit started, through school clubs and leaders, stories of inspiration, and live events, to spread the meaning of empathy. Amit feels that the key is to have youth show other youth the support systems they have available. The movement’s motto is “Hope, Believe, Succeed, and Inspire” and so far, 120 stories have been shared, 20 school clubs have been created, and 200 youth have volunteered to help lead the movement. As Amit says, “In the fearing society we live in today, the lack of empathy is the root of all evil. My Name, My Story has a simple plan to inspire empathy within the community.”
