“Taking care of the Earth should not be an assignment but rather a privilege.”

Kelly Antropov, CEO of Ari

Who do you care about the most?

I deeply care about my family and also Mother Earth. I think about it as an expanded family, a community we are all living in.

Why or how has this become important to you?

After the birth of my daughter everything in life suddenly shifted – including my understanding of the ecological situation we have put ourselves into, and will hand off to the future generations. Overconsumption has become very easy, and we are often creating global problems without even realising.

Who or what inspires and impacts your journey?

Other people have a huge impact on me. I draw inspiration from the small moments I share with different people. Sometimes it’s a lifelong friend whose relentless work ethics make a great example, or it could be a complete stranger helping someone on the street, reminding me to choose selflessness.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I would love to have the ability to teleport. This could fix many problems!
