Mission Behind You X Chantia Singleton
Who are you? What do you do?
What's you mission?
To plant seeds of self love, confidence and self acceptance. & To bring modernity and mindfulness to the world of Early Childhood Education.
Why not just be great at what you do? Why give back?
I don't like to put limits on myself as they gives others the impression they can put limitations on you.
I personally like to give back because without people giving to me, I would not be where I am. I have been homeless and someone gave me a floor/bed to sleep on. I have been hungry and someone fed me. How dare I not do the same for others? I specifically give back to children because I feel it fosters kindness and empathy at an early stage.
Every year, I like to travel and donate school supplies to children in countries striving to get ahead. I feel if teachers, classrooms and children have the tools they need to be successful, they are more likely to be just that.
Are there specific people that had a big influence on your desire to give back, if so who are they and how did they influence you?
I love when people in power give back quietly and not boastfully. It inspires me to do the same. Whether it be paying for groceries for someone I don't know or donating to a charity or a person on the road, I've learned not to announce it.
If you could ask for 3 things in this world what would it be?
1. For people to be more empathetic and kind.
2.To be unshakably happy most of the time :)
3. To be in a position to help people in need.
What’s your life motto?
"The Best Revenge is living well"
