🎤 “When we are given trust that we can do something… it’s actually very, very scary until we actually do it. The first time I was on stage facilitating Startup Weekend, I was so nervous. I don't know if I’m doing well, what is in people’s heads and I can’t control my feelings. Until it’s over, we carry this fear that we didn’t prepare enough and are not ready enough. But things change the moment it’s finished. It’s like a transformative experience: ‘oh, it’s actually not that scary! I can actually do it’”.

🇨🇳 Linka Lin is an amazing human being from China who is a community builder, an entrepreneur, a mentor, a facilitator and a cheerleader for so many young changemakers in Asia-Pacific.


🙌 Today’s episode is very special: we welcome back Linka who was our first amazing guest a few months ago because there was still so many things to speak about with her. So today you will hear about her experience at UNDP and scaling the Movers Programme to empower 11,000 youth in Asia-Pacific and also her journey co-founding Storius, a travel-tech startup aiming at reinventing the way we travel.

💪 In her first episode, Linka was speaking about how she wants to be a dose of inspiration for other people and her mission to spread kindness. In today’s episode, we come back to her philosophy around kindness and how it shapes her relationships with other people.

😍 Finally, she shares with us her new daily routine to check whether she has learned something new, whether she’s taking care of her mental health and, of course, whether she has been kind to other people! Enjoy Part II of the conversation with Linka and message her to let her know her awesome she is. To know more about Linka’s journey, do not forget to listen or re-listen to the first episode of Life Line with Linka!
