“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ―author unknown
A week spent volunteering in rural Honduras with college classmates exposed me to conditions too horrible to ignore and stories too tragic to keep to myself. When I came back to the United States I decided not to waste my life’s energy on all of the things that suddenly became meaningless. Instead, I would take a chance at improving the world in my own little way.
I’m a freelance writer and journalist who is passionate about international development, education and youth empowerment. My mission is two-fold: to use my writing to spread the word about those individuals, organizations and movements—big and small—that are making the world a better place; and to offer inspiration for others to live their lives passionately for the greater good. I hope what you read here will move you to action and encourage you to create ripples of your own.
