I come from a mixed economic background—one of my parents grew out of a small village and the other grew out of a middle class household; together they helped create an incredible life for me in the West. I remember stories of how my dad couldn’t afford shoes until college and how my mom walked 6 miles round-trip every morning to the grocery store to buy fresh milk for me since they couldn’t afford a refrigerator to keep it cool. I was too young to remember being bootstrapped, but the roots of strength, grit, resilience and hope are deeply ingrained in our family today. I love being an Encourager because I see people, just like my parents, being encouraged and reinforced to grow positively in their own societies.
World Pulse aligns with my personal values of enabling others to be resourceful, courageous, supportive and resilient.
