A good example for this would be individuals who hold within high social responsibility with the urge to have a positive impact on human development by their contributions.
Weam Bakheet implemented this bravely, so after she finished her Master’s in the UK, she decided to return to her homeland, Saudi Arabia and started to design and work on a program that is the first of its kind that focuses on training children to raise their awareness toward life’s important concepts. She believes that her program should include 8 vital fundamentals for good-mannered children and therefore better individuals in the future.
Proudly, Weam founded her awareness center for children, which is located in Jeddah/Saudi Arabia under the name “Wise Juniors”.
Have you ever heard about “Caprese Cake”? Well, it’s really famous all around the world. It’s one of the most appreciated Italian cakes! Invented in Capri Island in the Southern part of Italy, the tasty Caprese has just a few ingredients to be prepared …. The smell of almonds is irresistible!
Its origin is really curious: In 1920, a cook called Carmine Di Fiore was preparing an almond-cake in his cooking-workshop for three criminals who arrived in Capri Island. unfortunately, he made a big mistake! He forgot to put flour inside the mixture, but he didn’t notice that. He put the cake in the oven. The result was fantastic! The cake was soft and perfumed! Simply perfect! The three criminals were totally satisfied. He continued to prepare it: everybody loved the Caprese cake.
