For as long as we can remember, we've been hearing sentences like "you are not fulfilling your potential", "if only you would spend more time studying", "why are you so stubborn?" "you need to learn how to listen" and other sentences like that. They were hinting that because we couldn’t find ourselves within the regular education system, we are more problematic and not as smart as other people our age.
At the age of 21, we decided to show the world a different side of potential. We met at camp Ramapo in NY – a camp for kids with special needs and kids at risk. It took us about 5 minutes to realize what we want to do in life: We want to find all those kids at risk, with autism, Down syndrome, mental challenges, and more, and teach them that they definitely have what to give to the world.
Each and every one of us has our own piece of the puzzle and together, we create one big beautiful picture.
