I am a 50 year old woman.

I am a donor-activist.  img_1469

I believe in service to both our local community as well as our global one.

I believe in education for all girls and women.

I believe travel opens our minds and changes our thinking.

I believe change creates opportunity.

I believe in giving back.

I believe in speaking up.

Although this is my blog, I hope you will contribute, comment, and share, especially if you don’t agree with what I’m saying.  I want a conversation, a dialogue to happen on these pages.  I want a connection between me and those who hear my loudly whispered words.

Thanks for stopping by.
