My Dear Enemy

BY TUMBURU GAUTAM
@ MSM GOES PECHAKUCHA ON MAR 17, 2017

Based on eastern philosophy, the concept of non-violence and pardon consists in adding a flavour and humour for enjoyment as well as transmitting a message of tolerance and humanitarianism. Do not judge people from one angle and always see the positive side of things, says Tumburu Gautam. Learn to see your enemy as an source of inspiration for self-improvement.

BY MICHELLE CLAIRE
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

"Don't give up on your dreams, and give uncertainty a chance."

Michelle Claire shares stories about the risks that she has taken in her life, and that have brought her from San Antonio, Texas, to Washington, D.C. -- everything from white-river rafting, telling her mother she wanted to become an artist, and personal decisions about love and friendship. Speaking on PechaKucha has been on her bucket list for a long time-- and we're glad she took the risk, at PechaKucha Alexandria Vol.1

‘What happens in the space we allow for things to happen?’

BY KRISS ZAMMIT ENDRICH
@ VOL 2 ON MAR 01, 2018

Illustrator Kriss Zammit Endrich came from an island world of high pressure academics, art conservation and perfectionism. With her whole life planned out for her by others, Kriss began to feel dissatisfied with the direction of her young life. Making her way through London, and eventually Saskatchewan, she soon  began making decisions from a place of passion once again, finding her own artistic voice and realzing sometimes the best things come when the pressure is off.
