About Me: I am a writer and a mother with a love of travel, a passion for global women's issues, and a fierce desire to do something in furtherance of social justice, equality, and empowerment for all.
My 16 year old son, who is a film-maker in training, and I are going to embark on an adventure this September (2012) to visit a micro-credit organization, Jamii Bora, in Nairobi, Kenya to film and interview. We are looking for a 2nd project, organization, or community to spend time with somewhere in Africa, preferably in a country that is close to Kenya. We hope to have a heart and mind opening experience, to make connections for future opportunities to be everyday activities working towards creating more equality, sustainability, abundance, and opportunities for all. The trip may produce a documentary film, a series of articles, a book, and/or clarity about how I can most effectively engage, and express and offer my gifts and talents in global community.
