“In my family, if one person does something, we all do it” says Paolo Ben Salmi. Paolo is on a mission to get kids off their iPads and into the world. Already a published author, podcaster and youngest ambassador for the not-for-profit Water To Go, this would be impressive for most people, yet Paolo has achieved all of this aged only 11 years old. Together with his 4 siblings, Paolo has benefited from home schooling and active encouragement from Mum, Sabrina. With positivity, personal development and creativity abound, Paolo comes from talented stock. Paolo sees his life as two journeys; the self discovery journey and the external journey. The self-discovery should be practised daily, according to Paolo. A natural born speaker, Paolo refers to his self-discovery as an adventure. “It should be fun,” says Paolo. Using stories and analogies that bely his 11 years, it is hard not be captivated by Paolo’s enthusiasm and positivity. He has even created his own personal development course aimed at kids and young teens. In amongst all of these mature pursuits, Paolo still finds time for play and is an ardent Arsenal supporter. “I want to be the director of my own movie” says Paolo confidently and even has some questions of his own for the interviewer!
