2010!

•January 21, 2010 • 1 Comment

I’m back on the blog! I hope to do better than I was able to do with my South African (amazing) experience! I’m just so excited because we launched a Youth Leadership Academy: Agents of Change at Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site. I’m so proud of this dynamic, talented and brilliant group of young people who have committed to being and becoming Agents of Change! I will utilize my blog to keep you updated on what they’re up to and how they are making a difference in the world! It is such a wonderfully diverse group of students and I’m beaming at the possibilities that this Academy will bring! I just wanted to check in and let you know so that you can subscribe and keep up with what’s going on and see the light and energy these youth bring to the Historic Site, Little Rock, Arkansas, the U.S. and world! The sky is the limit for them and I’m proud to watch them grow and become great leaders in their schools and communities.

I wish that my camera could convey the scale of this mountain. Some parts are flat walking up, but some are straight up and down. There are even ladders and chains at certain points. I took the ladders!

4th creche crincipal interview. It was wonderful. I learned all about a Xhosa tradition that takes place when a baby is born. They slaughter a goat in the baby's honour and introduce the baby to the ancestors!

These girls were extra curious what we were doing. Some of the SAEP staff were measuring a newly constructed shack that will soon become a new part of a creche that needs serious repair.
