Marketplaces are an everyday part of Haitian peoples's lives. They are also filthy, lack sanitation, and are eyesores. What lasting solutions are there for improving their safety and beauty?

Carla commented on When did we stop wanting to be an astronaut?

I can't stop thinking about this idea. Does that mean we will all be generalists? Projects could range from three weeks to ten years? Can this idea apply to most of the work in the world (including subsistence farming, trade work, investment banking)?

I like where you're going with this, Meena. Maybe a good formula is PASSION (what gets you excited/makes you feel fulfilled?) + POSSIBILITY (what are the outlets for that passion?) + ROAD MAP (what do you need to try some of those options?). Sounds simple but I think it might be easy to get frustrated with any one of those elements. Even passion.

Carla commented on BUILD: high school entrepreneurs

This is amazing! Nothing like getting a taste for the real thing to get you excited about starting a business. It would be great to talk to students a couple of years after they have participated in BUILD to see how they are faring.
