"It was in Spain, January 2014, I was visiting my brother. I saw all these ruines, unfinished speculation projects and empty houses at the south coast of Spain, the Costa del Sol. I saw all these empty resorts and thought about the high rates of youth unemployment in Spain and Europe.

The YES Initiative started to evolve and take shape. Back home sharing my idea here and there, the plan for "YES" became reality."
