More on Jonathan
Jonathan is an average 24 year old (teetering on 25 and his self proclaimed quarter life crisis) with a pretty awesome story. Almost a year and a half ago he gave up everything in his pursuit to find something more. In this inspiring presentation he’ll take us from the lows of material unhappiness to an unexpected and liberating high of owning only 100 things. Hear how it became a catalyst for change and inspired him to found his own community project, get his own radio show, tour London with an outdoor cinema and spoken word poet and help him find a new love!
