I remember coming back from Thailand, inspired by an artist I had met who turned his pottery studio into a beautiful coffee shop for tourists.
More than 38 of my friends chipped in to help buy our machine and support scholarship recipients.
Soon our graduates were starting businesses of their own, finding jobs at local coffee shops and restaurants, and even mitigating the costs associated with studying abroad. The dream became real.
A big thank you to those who have supported our program and these incredibly driven and smart young people. What a great investment, with huge and very tangible results. Talk about ROI! I hope to continue to support education and leadership skills through initiatives like this.
