Latest Updates: Named 2012 Opportunity Leader, Successful Kickstarter Campaign, and Speaking Engagements

I have been very fortunate over the past couple of weeks to receive some great news. I was one of 25 people in the country selected for the (all expense paid) Opportunity Nation Summit in DC. The summit will take place Sep 18-19th, with last year’s summit bringing together Michael Bloomberg, Serena Williams Fareed Zakaria,and more. I’m thankful/grateful for the opportunities afforded to me. It’s never about awards or recognition.It’s about the potential to serve.

From their website:

The OpportunityNation Leaders Program is a national network of vocal opportunity advocates with personal experience facing barriers to opportunity and a track record of making meaningful change in their respective communities. Acting as community mobilizers and lending their insight to our policy agenda, Opportunity Leaders will be essential voices in the OpportunityNation campaign.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to meet with fellow thought leaders who are affecting change.

Today, we reached our goal for our Kickstarter campaign for The Chicago International Social Change Film Festival. WE’re thrilled with the support we’ve received and we realize that we just begun our road in making this a phenomenal festival.

The number of organizations where I have an opportunity to present is growing. I’ve had the pleasure of presenting at the College of Complexes, on a podcast for DesignChat, and for the upcoming latin festival, Unisono. I’m looking forward to even more opportunities to present what we’re working on and how we are affecting change. I’ll be the Featured Speaker at the Third Unitarian Church on August 26 @ 10am.
