Connie: Today, I am featuring an amazing gal I’ve recently had the honour of getting to know. She has travelled the world and has a heart for women. After travelling the world, she still thinks we can change the it. I think that is just the kind of progressive thinking we need today, ladies. Dare to read on.
I first thought about the world as a bigger idea than my neighbourhood in North Vancouver when my Dad travelled to Kenya in the 1980’s to help build a church. I was around ten years old and remember being really intrigued with his stories of this completely different world than I knew. I grew up middle-class Canadian, not lacking for anything, my school was just around the corner and my neighbourhood was a safe place to play all summer without parents keeping an eye on us. I didn’t know what poverty was or even looked like.
