“YOU KNOW MOM, THERE ARE ANSWERS TO THAT”March 5, 2023
“CONVERSATION: INTEGRATION AND HOW IT CAN SUCCEED…March 19, 2023
This is the title of the book by Rahman Jamal
I got to know Rahman Jamal from Dilek Karagöl ‘s LinkedIn Live. I was very enthusiastic about the inspiring conversation between Dilek and Rahman, because I could feel a both-and-attitude: Specifically: technology and spirituality are not mutually exclusive, but complement each other. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart again to this point.
Later I bought Rahman Jamal ‘s book and was captivated from the first word to the last. Because this both-and-attitude – which for me is the basis for a common WE – runs through the stories of Rahman Jamal. It is fascinating how he builds the bridges between:
Engineering and Humanities
Locals and non-natives
Cultures and countries
And not resentful, but value-free and mindful.
I am also impressed by his way of conveying the message, his humor and the emphasis that we are all encouraged to think about the consequences of our actions, no matter in which industry.
The book invites us to come together and reminds us that we always have the possibility:
🔸️to connect instead of disconnect
🔸️to build a bridge instead of a wall
🔸️De-escalate instead of escalate
In his book you will also get to know his motivations: so to say the story behind the story: exciting, entertaining and touching.
I asked myself: How would I have coped if I had been confronted with such a situation as a 10-year-old, new in Germany without any knowledge of German, in a class in which only German is taught? At this point bravo and thank you for sharing your story with us.
A very valuable book that I can recommend to anyone who is willing to question their view of things and define the common WE.
How fortunate that there are people like Rahman Jamal who give courage and hope for togetherness. People who appreciate the differences and are looking for what unites us.
That’s diversity and beyond.
Thank you, too, dear Sunday community, for appreciating the differences together and looking for what unites us.
