I arrived in the US on March 31 intending to travel for three months, visiting and re-connecting with friends, attending my 20th reunion at Grinnell College, and giving talks and presentations to inspire–especially the next generation–to follow their dreams and to promote what we do at COMMITTED.
However, within a month of being in the country, a major earthquake struck the country putting me on the added mission of raising awareness about the calamity, networking–with the hope of establishing long-term relationships–and raising funds for our relief work.

At Global Leadership Academy (GLA) in Denver I presented to my United World College of the Adriatic friend Kristine’s class. I visited the school on June 12. I talked to them about the circumstances and context of my birth, where I ended up in my life, and what I am doing now so as to inspire her students, who were mostly of Hispanic background and from families living near or below the poverty line.

I would like to thank Kristine for arranging and coordinating the visit to the school and wish her and her students success!
