INKLINE is an international media platform that features positive news (solution-focused, no fluff), interviews with go-getters championing sociocultural causes, stories of people living their purposes and chasing passions amid adversities, and various sources of inspiration (from book reviews to film insights) — all to show the diversity, beauty, and goodness of our world.
MISSION AND VISION
Generation Y has been brought up on the core idea that the discovery of one’s passion ultimately leads to the fulfilment of life’s purpose; that we’re all bound to change the world in one way or another. But for all we know, how many of us do give chase? How many of us have been lucky enough to realise what our true passions are? And how many of us lucky ones have had the opportunity to turn our causes into reality? Easier said than done, right? That’s what we thought too.
INKLINE aspires to be a source of inspiration and motivation for the emerging adults (the scientifically correct term for the 20-somethings, apparently) who are out there in search of the worthwhile.
It was one of them late morning coffee discussions — contemplating job rejections, unpaid internships and largely depressing world news. Like always the conversation took its pre-scripted turn to end on the same note: Why not pool the diverse talent that sat around the table to do something worthwhile. Maybe it was something in the coffee that morning, unlike ever before, it was more than just one of us wanted to chase the worthwhile. On December 2016, we put pen to paper for INKLINE.
