Youth Panelists included the following speakers:
Simone Banks 13, Youth Leader BlessedGirls Ambassador, USA said, “Display Acts of Kindness, We show kindness everyday. Whether we are being friendly, generous, or considerate. This by itself can create and promote civility in not only our community, but our culture as well.”
Be optimistic, To be optimistic means to be hopeful and confident about the future. We face many big problems in today's society, but you must always be optimistic. Sometimes the best way to solve problems is to just get creative. Being optimistic and caring for our future can help create civility in the world we live in. Modern problems require modern solutions!
Britney Vallarades 17 year old Youth Ambassador from Georgetown, Guyana states,
“I now turn and look at people when they’re rude to me, not afraid, to show them that
they’ve hurt me just a little, and let them see that hurt, not the anger and ugliness that we so often put up in front of our pain. Maybe their pain will see mine, and we’ll recognize something in each other that reminds us that being a little kinder is the only rule we ever need to know”
Solutions for. “Focus On Others” needs and consider how your words and actions will impact others before you speak or act.
Approach each interaction with respect, regardless of whether you believe that the other
person’s behaviours “earn” or even elicit that respect.
Appreciate the value of diverse opinions in developing approaches to varying situations.
Recognize that it does not equate to agreement if you listen, clarify what was said, and ask questions to gain an understanding of others’ opinions. learn to “agree to disagree” respectfully.
Kaitlyn Black 16 year old BlessedGirl Youth Leader US states, “let your voice be heard and support other people's accomplishments.Your time is coming.”
Sheryl Sandberg says, “to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored.”
Beauty Razack 16 year old, Youth Ambassador to the International Climate Action Network, Representative at the U.N.F.P.A. (United Nations Fund for Population), Guyana made a major impact by sharng from a global prospective.
Alina deZoya 17 year old Social Activist, President of Rays of Hope USA shared,
“We must continue to host public forums in order to openly discuss issues that affect the community as well as educate yourself and others as much as possible. I believe that it is vital to continue to consume education on topics that are not directly taught in schools. Education is a tool that can be used to evaluate our history and work towards solutions that will shape the future.”
Landra Richards 19 year old Biology Researcher Georgetown, Guyana
“Begin with acknowledging and taming your state of mind. Once you understand what civility means, teach your mind to grasp, process, then transmute negativity to a form of perspective. You can do so by choosing to understand others first before trying to falsify their beliefs. Also, read books relating to leadership, mind philosophy, and psychology.
Set standards for yourself to model.How would you like the future you to be seen as or live? write down all that ran through your mind after you read that question, then try to think of ways to change your surroundings to reflect what you want for your character. The point that the environment influences an individuals' behavior and desire to act is a FACT.
"It's too much to expect in an academic setting that we should all agree, but it is not too much to expect discipline and unvarying civility." -John Howard.
The Women Panelists included the following leaders:
Soyum Shah of Nairobi, Kenya is an Executive Director of Kingsway Group Ltd Service and a devoted Social and Community Worker for over 2 decades. “Women are encouraged to model the Behaviour you would like to see from others. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This would help in building civility in our culture.
Do not let your Silence Condone Disrespectful Behaviour, Yet Consider when and where to Speak up. Lastly, Great Solution that has worked for me personally to Collaborate with your Friends to define and apply respectful Behaviours.
"The strength and power in a woman is her voice, the courage of a woman is in her actions.."
Dr Linda Lara Award-winning Community Change Maker USA states, “Civility First: in every situation, react, respond and think Civility. When you make a Conscience and intentional decision that you are always going to think Civility First it will soon become a natural mindset to always think.”
Secondly, value others: You may not always agree with others but that doesn’t mean you can not value them as a human being. We tend to confuse someone’s opinion or position with their value. Valuing people is simply showing them human kindness and accepting them for who they are and not for their beliefs.
“Everyone is called to greatness! That’s because everyone was created to be great.”
Pholile Manilli, Missionary & Media Expert states, “Create or Support Context-Relevant Policies and Programs.” States, “Only a woman will know what reduces the quality of life for other women and girls because they live it everyday. For those who are in positions of power / influence, they can use that to push for policies which address inequality specific to that society. Programs can also be a great way to reach out to communities by imparting one's skill, knowledge or ability. Whatever your standing, you can make a difference.”
Secondly, “Liberate the mind of the African girl.” You don't have to be born in America, Europe or any first world country to achieve greatness. Lack is meant to refine you and not define you. Know your worth. Understand that challenges are seasonal. Opportunities or blessings however, have to do with your destiny. Someone living according to their destiny will seek to thrive and not merely survive. When you survive, you pursue a lifestyle; when you thrive, you build a legacy. Thriving includes growth, multiplication and establishment.
“Life happens in stages. Those stages have nothing to do with your age but everything to do your readiness" P Maneli
Dr Betty Speaks World Civility Ambassador, Ambassador to The Veteran Women LLC, USA declairs, “Civility is just like being a woman it's an expression and a behavior of embracing beauty. Civility embraces actioncution with resulitions, plus an atmosphere of livery and justice not for one but for all.”
Jane Kamau Kenyan Missionary in Burundi states, “We are empowered to empower. Great or small we are graced in a unique special way to impact lives. Community around us awaits our supportive hand to reach out to them spiritually, emotionally, physically and in all ways of life. The dream of God in us is beyond our reach. We therefore need to aspire to remain faithful and with expectation of growth in that gift of civility, community, creativity causing climate change within and about.”
Courtesy is a way of living inspired by thoughtfulness, consideration, and respect for others and for yourself." — Mary Mercedes in A Book of Courtesy
