“Our name, my company’s name is “Project Everyone,” the goals are a project for everyone. We cannot all be peace negotiators, we cannot all cause wars to cease and there is some terrible things going on in the world at the moment and I think it’s sometimes overwhelming and it spurs you to inaction. But everybody can do something, that’s my message, even if you are not a supermodel, best teacher in the world, we can all find way to promote peace.”
