"It is very important for young people not to be afraid of engaging in areas that are not common to the youth. Get involved in local activities, get involved in local initiatives, be involved in leadership positions, because you can’t learn unless you are involved. And if you make mistakes, that is alright too, because we all make mistakes and we learn from those mistakes. You gain confidence from learning, failing, and rising again.”

--Wangari Maathai, Kenyan environmental activist
