Change Yourself…Change The World.

And Away I Go!

Dear friends,

This past few months have been pretty low-key. I’ve been in Florida at home, living with my parents and little sisters, where my life has revolved mostly around studying hardcore for the GMAT (Yep, I want to get an MBA after I finish the Peace Corps. I take the exam in May!), doing an obsessive amount of Bikram Yoga, and eating all kinds of delicious vegan food. Life is pretty great: I can’t complain.

But it’s about to get even greater! Tomorrow I leave for California to become a StartingBloc Fellow at the Los Angeles 2011 Institute. I’ll be meeting with about 70 other young budding social entrepreneurs to share ideas and collaborate together. We’ll be learning about new models that shape social impact, and to promote driving social innovation across sectors. We’ll all be competing in a ‘Social Innovation Collaboration’ where we’ve been split into groups of 5 and have to tackle the challenge of climate change. There are fellows all over the world coming to this institute, and I can’t wait to meet them.

As time goes on, I become more and more interested in business development and social enterprise. Thanks to my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to really discover how it works in different areas of the world. I am really excited and honored to be a part of StartingBloc, and I can’t wait for the Institute to begin!

I’ll keep you updated folks!
Much love,
