Nisha Benny-Varghese is a humanitarian, storyteller and describes herself as “an aspiring Good Human Being” who tries to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. 

In this episode, Nisha Benny-Varghese discusses:

  • volunteering at Breath of Life, a children’s home in East London, South Africa, that cares for abandoned and orphaned babies until they find a suitable home for them or until they are reunited with their families…
  • her liberating experience ziplining in 2016 to raise funds for Smile Train to repair 42 cleft palates…
  • how having cerebral palsy and needing help every day has inspired her philanthropy and volunteerism…
  • the importance of not “labeling” people…
  • getting great joy from the small things in life…
  • practicing gratitude every morning and every night by mentioning to herself a list of things for which she is grateful…
  • reminding us to use past pain to help someone else in the present…
  • and this inspiring advice for us all, “Don’t let anyone tell you that your voice doesn’t matter.”
