It will be lonely up there if we fight by our own

I was drug user once. I got addicted for years and almost die due to overdose. Support from my family and my circle of friends has helped me to get out from those dark circle. Their continuous love and faith have helped me to re-found myself and my purpose of life. Had experiencing to life in the edge, life without a purpose and almost dead make me feel very grateful that God somehow has given me the second opportunity in life.

Through that experiences, i learn that no one wants to life in uncomfortable situation (being discriminate and underestimated) by others. Every single human beings needs to be supported and to be love in order to achieve their goals in life.

After passing my darkest days, i learn that love, hope and faith are determinant factors that someone need in their life. So i decided to establish a youth community (more about this could be read in my profile) as medium to share our love and responsibility with people around us especially for undeserved people. Then my journey of life has lead me to work in NGO and finally one of my friend has recommend me to join world pulse.

I believe that world pulse has spreading love, hope and faith that is needed for all people to bring enlightenment to the world we live in. World pulse make me realize that we are somehow unite in a movement.

"It will be lonely up there if we fight by our own" and through world pulse, i recognize that i am not alone...
