I’m so excited to speak on the the plenary panel at NAFSA next week in Vancouver BC, focusing on Social Entrepreneurship in International Education! All of us who are speaking that day had transformational experiences abroad that inspired us do the work we are doing today! We hope to encourage everyone to put their dreams into action. For me, studying abroad in South Africa at age 15 left me with a passion for social justice issues and study abroad. That experience absolutely was the starting point of my journey towards the creation of OneWorld Now!. I would like to see study abroad as a part of everyone’s education in high school – I’m certain the world would be a different place, if that were the case.
