Working in agriculture, acquiring knowledge and working with other groups to exchange and share experiencies.

Who is someone who inspires you?

My parents are the best people I know in my life. I’ve been so fortunate to grow up with a mother and father who support me in everything I do. I’m eternally grateful to have been raised by such amazing people.

The flowing water you hear while riverside.

What Project would a laptop help you with?

I’m currently in charge of a collective that spearheads workshops on sustainable agricultural practices. We convene with other local groups to share findings and techiques.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

A number of tasks would become easier and new possibilites would open up for us with a laptop. With a donation, we’d be able to communicate with other groups easier, start a local news letter, and do some marketing for the local coffee we grow.

The best part of everything is connecting and collaborating with other groups. I love listening to their stories and hearing about their work. It gives me a fresh perspective on the home that I hold so dear.
