About this talk
Soulaima Gourani has always been ambitious, but nobody expected that she would go far in life. In fourth grade her teacher even said that she should lower her ambitions since she was a girl, had dark skin and was called Soulaima.
She found ways of overcoming these “challenges” and realised that her emotional and social skills were in high demand. According to her a greater focus on these ´soft´ qualities in our schools is needed to ensure the future happiness and success of our children.
