Ami Yares - Heartbeat (Israel/Palestine)

“Dear Darren (Beyond Skin CEO) - Thank you again for your vision and camaraderie.

I left Northern Ireland full of much hope and spirit knowing that our causes of peace building and peace building connect us overseas and land so far apart.  The Global Youth Peace Summit brought together a diverse group of peaceful revolutionaries full of great capability and time-tested practice to advance the cause of peace in Northern Ireland and beyond. 

Personally, I felt a great urgency to help youth find focus and self-actualizing roles in the betterment of society be it in Belfast or any other part of the world. You also helped bring Gani, Mark, Luna and I together who despite being a part of the same organisation, our timelines of participation differ. At the summit, we combined our experiences together into beautiful voices and for that, I am truly grateful.  I look forward to working with you again. In the meantime, we'll continue our efforts to empower our youth through the power of music and co-creation.”
