Meet Silvan, our new intern

image

I am a writer, musician, and general all-around weirdo artist. I have spent my whole life trying to engage with the questions of how to change the world and how to best communicate ideas to people. So I was very excited when I first found out about Breakthrough and I am absolutely ecstatic at the idea that I get to be part of that process.

I know it’s a little cliche (sometimes things are cliche for a reason) but I keep thinking about this Margaret Mead quote: 

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has."

And that sounds great to me. Let’s do it, let’s change thew world.
