I Will Be a Hummingbird

“Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree, you water it and make it survive, you haven’t done a thing. You are just talking.”
—Wangari Maathai

As International Women’s Day approaches on March 8th, I wanted to honour some important women who have taught me valuable life lessons. First on my list is Wangari Maathai who unfortunately passed away in 2011. In this beautiful animation she explains how we can all help make a difference, no matter how small the effort, with a beautiful analogy involving a hummingbird. I think its message is increasingly more important as each year goes by: We all need to do our part. We all need to be hummingbirds now, more than ever.

Please enjoy these two precious minutes.
