Impact from Challenge




“I just wanted to thank you all for the opportunity to connect with people around the world. This was my first truly global thing I’ve done in my life and I wanted to say thank you for making it possible.” – Tristan, USA


 “I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the entire team who made this challenge a reality, from the visionary leaders to the supportive investors and dedicated executives. Your commitment to fostering global connections and empowering change-makers is truly commendable, I had the best experience this year so far with you! So thank you so much.
This program has been an absolute game-changer for me. I had the honor of connecting with individuals from over 50 different countries, each bringing their unique perspectives and cultures to the table. It was an incredible opportunity to share the rich tapestry of my own country’s culture with people from around the world, fostering a deep appreciation for our differences and a profound sense of global unity.
As I move forward, I’m excited to see how this journey with Your Big Year unfolds. I believe it’s just the beginning of something truly great, and I’m eager to continue growing, learning, and making a positive impact alongside this incredible community.
Looking forward to having the opportunity of being one of the leaders of the next GCC!” – Ahmed, Algeria
