Gayle Hann is a paediatrician that hit the headlines for her tireless work in helping the sufferers of gang violence. She has made it her mission to engage and involve youth gang members in their own care and rehabilitation in an effort to prevent them needing to come to the hospital in the future.

Amani Simpson is now an entrepreneur and founder of Aviard Inspires but at the age of 21, he was stabbed seven times in the course of a robbery. Since then he has dedicated his life to transform the lives (and perceptions of) youths across the country.

Never have such an unlikely couple come together to make a difference. This talk, from #DFTB19, had laughs, tears, and fist-bumps aplenty. It is the feel-good story of the conference that will reaffirm the idea that people are not all bad.
