To me, being a difference maker means you view the world with curiosity and openness. You’re always looking at what is working and what needs improving.
To be a difference maker means to have a positive impact on others or the world. It means using your talents, skills, and resources to make a difference in the lives of others or to address important issues.
For me, being a Difference Maker means that you are someone who cares and refuses to give up on a better future.
