6 Degrees by Happy Inc. is a program aimed to educate students through multicultural experiences.
By allowing students from around the world to interact, we can shine a light on the cultural differences that are at the root of many conflicts today, not with the intention to change them, but to better understand them.
Often times what is unknown can be negatively perceived as fear, which by definition, is triggered by a perceived threat.
By connecting different cultures, what was once foreign and unknown, becomes more familiar and less of a threat.
As Mark Twain said, “travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness”; not only does traveling put one’s place in the world into perspective, but it also introduces them to opportunities they otherwise may have never known.
To make the world a better place, we must start with tomorrow's leaders.
Building stronger communities by connecting students across the world; creating multicultural experiences for todays youth.
