HeroPress: Global Unity

HeroPress: Global Unity
Pull Quote: I am quite lucky to wake up every morning and work, all on my own, in a country where 54% of the population are unemployed and over 70% are youth.

One of the things I’ve loved most about HeroPress is getting to know people far away. It’s getting harder and harder to name a country where I can’t say “Hey, I have a friend there!”.  This week I’m in Australia for WordCamp Sydney, and I’m crazy excited about all the people I’m going to meet. The global unity of the WordPress community is exhilarating.

The replay essay I picked for this week is titled “A Bottomless World of Possibilities” by Jamaal Jaamac in Mogadishu, Somalia. His world is so completely different from mine that sometimes I even have a hard time asking the right questions to find out what it’s like.

Jamaal doesn’t live in a place where good work comes easy or often. It’s chiseled out of society with labor and love. There’s a stereotype that people in poor countries are lazy, but I think they have to be stronger and work harder just to make it. Jamaal is one of my heroes.

Check out his essay.
