I am passionate about:
Bringing rural America to rural third world countries with a specific emphasis on youth working with rural businesses as mentors. Rural areas tend to be exposed to limited demographics and how can we change that through first hand experiences?
A little known fact about me is:
I am by nature an introvert. I have boundless energy due to the fact that I spend time alone.

Exec. Dir. of Rural to Rural
"The function of man is to live, not to exist. Jack London"
I've been a member for 16+ years with the Missionaries of Charity, an order founded by Mother Teresa working in various capacities such as running Aids Hospices, Unwed Mothers homes, summer camps, homeless shelters, health programs, and soup kitchens. I moved to rural California in the Sierra Mountains where I founded a school (I currently am in the process of handing over the school to past students who have chosen to return "home") driven by design thinking and working with students to design their own learning process. Rural to Rural is an outcome of this work.
Adriana!!! How wonderful to be reconnecting. I would LOVE to connect and see how we could make Rural to Rural a part of Latin America. Let's connect via email. email@example.com Really looking forward to reconnecting and hopefully working together. Blessings, Sue
Finishing up school this week before summer break. I would love to connect and discuss ways to begin a hub in Kenya. Would you be willing to share your email? I believe we would have a lot in common with our work around youth empowerment.
