About Me

When I was young, I was a peace corps teacher in Kolahun, Liberia, for a year. Over the years I have lost contact with everyone I knew there. I read the news, but I would like to connect one-to-one. The way Liberian women intervened to stop the civil war was wonderful, hopeful and inspiring. When I learned about World Pulse, I wanted to be part of this network encouraging girls and women of the whole world to lead us to respect for nature, economic and social justice and a culture of peace.

I have 3 children and 7 grandchildren. I have been teaching, farming, tree planting, politics and have worked as a geologist. Now I am retired. I am learning Mi'kmaq, the indigenous language of Nova Scotia and I am studying Arabic. In my city of Halifax, Arabic is the second most spoken language.

My Vision

People work to care for Earth, its creatures, habitats & each other. We don't take our own opinions too seriously.

Needs
