Welcome to my personal journey with an Afghan School. On April 15, I will embark on a trip to Kabul and Mazar-e-Sharif with Julia Bolz, Founder of Ayni Education International. Julia is a former corporate attorney turned social justice advocate who has quietly and humbly been making a difference in Afghanistan for the past eight years. She has instilled and renewed hope for thousands of Afghan children and their families. She has also instilled and renewed my own hope for word peace and the education of 75 million children across the globe who are not able to attend school. She is, quite simply, the most heroic and inspirational women I have had the honor of knowing. She has proven that impossible dreams can come true.
To say I'm excited to now be assisting Julia vastly understates the emotions I have. For the first time in my life, I can honestly say, that I know not what tomorrow brings - and it causes me no alarm or worry. I am embarking on a mission far larger and more important than myself. Over the course of my journey I plan to share the observations I have, the insights I gain and (hopefully) the growth I make as a person. Please share your thoughts and questions as well. I want you all to travel with me on this journey.
