Guest Post: Kairos Society Global Summit

Mayank Jain, a student at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, related to me a great event he attended recently in NYC.  I invited him to write a guest post about his experience:

"I recently attended the Kairos Society Global Summit held in the UN building in New York and the New York Stock Exchange. What they've done at Kairos is truly amazing. Started in his freshman year by Ankur Jain at the Wharton School of Business at UPenn, the Kairos Society's mission is to "Do well by doing good." Focused on social entrepreneurship, it assembles the top college entrepreneurs from all over the world including Europe, China, and India in an effort to make a difference in the world.

In the UN building some of the industry leaders in their fields gave speeches demonstrating the possibilities of all the world's exponentially growing technologies. Speakers included Thomas Goetz, Editor-in-chief of Wired Magazine, and Peter Diamandis, founder of X-Prize Foundation. In the NYSE, the top 50 most innovative companies set up booths to show their start-ups to other students, CEOs, and many business and political leaders.

As I walked around the trading room floor, it was both amazing and inspiring to see what these students had done. The main thing to take away from this is that age doesn't matter when you're trying to change the world. For those who are worried about the future of the world, after attending the Kairos Summit, I can assure you that it's in good hands."

I waged war on a giant huntsman spider last night. I won.

On Project Copperhead

Yes, that's right. I was in the bathroom and this giant eight-legged monster decides to say hello. First instinct for me was that it was gonna get a broom to the face. I feel bad. I like animals. I just don't like when the crawly ones decide to sneak up on you late at night, when you're at your most vulnerable.

My blog today, I'm planning on sharing one of my favourite short stories that I've written. Hopefully it makes sense to you when you read it. I'd love to know what you think. I'm not a writer by trade, I just love doing it.

The Business Man (A Short Story):

The weight of the world is visible on the lines of his forehead. His life is a rush. Deadlines, schedules and peak-hour traffic. His shined leather shoes carry him quickly across town; his eyes focused on the watch on his wrist, rather than where he is going. He trips on the sidewalk and quickly tries to recover his speedy composure. The ruffles of paper and clicking of keys flood his head whilst in the office, with no time to think about the family he's left at home. Wife and daughter frequently wait for Daddy to come home for dinner, however he just has to finish his work for the night. Overtime; hours overtime...
