Awakening the Young Compassionate Heart

On May 26th Kajsa Vlasic visited WRHS and spoke to students and teachers about how her passion for caring and loving others has influenced, and continues to shape her life.  Having been born in Johannesburg, just a few days after the Apartheid referendum that gave black South Africans equal rights, Kajsa’s early years were a part of a large global family network among communities that worked together and cared for each other.  Kajsa inspired the audience to “pursue what you think is important – we all have goals and dreams” and by incorporating service work into what you love to do – this will support a shift in consciousness.

Kajsa maintains her passion to serve as a college student. This summer she will travel to Ghana as a part of a public health research project for the University of Utah. She was the recipient of Utah’s Young Humanitarian Award in 2010 and is currently studying at the University of Utah as a pre-med English and Spanish student.

We are excited to announce Kajsa’s involvement with the Flourish Foundation and the Compassionate Young Leaders Program which will begin this Fall 2011.  If you are interested in more information on this program please email
