I would like to welcome you to Inform and Engage Official Website. My name is Big Irv.
I currently attend college where I am pursing a BS in Information Technology while working full-time. I consider myself to be in the Information Technology field by trait and a caring human being by heart. What can I say, I am a Pisces. I have always loved to stay up-to-date and informed about current events. I also love to help people. I guess you can accredit that to my parents. I believe that knowledge is power, information is essential and for the best possible outcome for everyone it should be shared freely and abundantly. I guess you can say that is partial why I decided to create Inform and Engage. The other motivating factors for creating Inform and Engage are listed below (because everyone loves a list.)
1 – Individuals have always asked me, how is it that I know this or that? (I have reach the conclusion that this is a result of people not sharing information freely as well as their environment.)
2 – I have found that usually people don’t notice how certain current events can affect them. (This maybe a result of the way that the information is presented to them.)
3 – In the past, when I have told people about events, I would overwhelm hear a common response, “What can I do about it?” (This is an understandable response. Considering that most people feel that they can’t really make a difference. I feel that everyone has a voice and can make a difference. What if the greatest leaders thought that they didn’t have a voice and couldn’t make a difference, where would society be?)
4 – Last but not least, I always ask myself, “Irv, what are you doing to make a difference?”
These 4 reasons lead me to decide that if I ever wanted to see change come about; that I would need to make it happen…and just like that Inform and Engage was created.
Inform and Engage has three main goals:
1 – Get individuals to have an open floor discussion about particular topics which should be discuss around the kitchen table but aren’t.
2 – Enable people to see the different ways that current events affect their everyday lives directly and indirectly.
3 – After people get inform, get them engaged so that they go out to create the change which we all desire.
With all of that being said, I intend to begin by creating videos and blogs about relevant current events and different things to improve individuals lives. I hope that these videos will inspire everyone to go out and make a difference, thinking freely and be a little more selfless. So now that you know a little about me and why I created Inform and Engage, go watch the videos and let’s change the world, one person at a time.
