On my sabbatical, I joined a Swiss philanthropist who builds schools in Myanmar. After our class, I play football barefoot with these young novices. One day, they found some balloons and they started playing with them. BEING with them is priceless. We came to teach but we learned more from these children- to be present each moment and be grateful with what we have. Few months after I left, the Swiss founder died in an accident while on a mission. This image reminds me of the joy he has brought to the lives of many children and the volunteers. It inspired me to give back as I continue to travel

Location: Magwe, Myanmar
