Young Visionaries

The time is always right to do what is right.

Although most of our content is for people over the age of 21+, we do have a place to highlight our Young Visionaries within the community. We consider a young visionary to be anyone who is under the age of 30 that is doing phenomenal things.

A visionary is someone with a strong vision of the future. Since such visions aren’t always accurate, a visionary’s ideas may either work brilliantly or fail miserably. Even so, visionary is usually a positive word. Martin Luther King, Jr., for instance, was a visionary in his hopes and ideas for a just society. The word is also an adjective; thus, for example, we may speak of a visionary project, a visionary leader, a visionary painter, or a visionary company.

If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.- Martin Luther king, Jr.
