I believe that we can create our own paths. I believe that we should challenge the status quo. I believe that we should rise above and do what we love - wherever that takes us.

I'm on a journey to meet inspiring social entrepreneurs and discover colourful cultures around the world. Jump on board and discover with me!



Behind extraordinary stories, there are extraordinary people. Paper Planes is a project that documents the stories of social entrepreneurs that devote their innovative ideas, creative skills, motivation and entrepreneurial qualities to introduce solutions to societal problems.
