Our world needs more opportunities to connect with others regardless of creed, colour and culture and it was a true honour to learn from four incredible leaders of their communities as part of the 'We Are All Sydney' leadership program. Their sentiment reminded me how lucky we are to be part of our community as well as a broader society that is getting better at recognising the dignity of difference:
Ruth Fesseha from the Ethiopian community said, 'exploring Moriah College gave me some great insight into how Jewish values, culture and identity is weaved into every facet of the school. It was inspiring to say the least, I love that it encourages the individual to thrive on every level. I've been touched by the love for life, learning, unity which you hold as a community.'
Lachelle Uzcateguigaymon from the African American community said:
'I felt the embodiment of culture and community. The professional and generous nature of all the teachers and staff who shared their skills and experiences really touched my heart. I will be bringing my learning to my community, hoping we too can build a stronger sense of identity.'
