Dr Hakim Young is a medical doctor from Singapore who has organized public health, humanitarian and peace-building programs in Afghanistan for the past 18 years. He started the Afghan Peace Volunteers, an inter-ethnic group of young Afghans dedicated to building non-violent alternatives to war. He is the 2012 recipient of the International Pfeffer Peace Prize and the 2017 recipient of the Singapore Medical Association Merit Award for contributions in social service to communities. Witnessing the everyday struggles of ordinary Afghans, he realized how daily emotional healthcare was essential not only for his well-being, but crucial to help him and his friends pull through different crises together. He has since been applying the growing science of emotions to improve his health and work and encourages everyone to care for their emotional health every single day.
