The following is the video of one of the three presentations I made to students at Suva Intermediate School, where my UWCAD friend Larry used to work. I talk to about my dreams and life and following dreams to classroom full of mostly Hispanic children, many of whom come from lower middle class or lower class families.
Human rights and education of Dalits, Women, Tharus and Tamangs, some of the marginalized Nepalese.
At a presentation to children and families from lower-middle class and lower class in Mexico, I share with them how I followed my dreams and beat the odds to achieve academic and professional success. I share with them how I did it, and to tell them to not lose hope!
The power of dreams.
I went and spoke to students at Montessori Del Pedregal about Nepal, the earthquake and the work COMMITTED is doing. The students at the school raised money on COMMITTED's behalf following the earthquake. I went to tell them what education and life was like for the children COMMITTED is trying to help.
