To be joyful, authentic, and extraordinary
After I graduated from college, I went to work in New York City as an investment banker. (Sooo not for me!) After several years, I quit to become a Kiva Fellow, which allowed me to work at 3 different microfinance institutions in Bosnia, Kenya and the Philippines. After an epic year of travel, I returned to New York to start my own organization to help young people launch projects that make a positive impact on the planet. (www.pandoprojects.org.) In October, I put Pando on hold and have spent the last 5 months living in Hong Kong. I am now moving to San Francisco, which has always felt like home.
I don't care how long it takes me, I'm going somewhere beautiful.
