My Goal of the Day: To practice what we teach at Global Citizen Year: leaving our comfort zones, putting curiosity before judgement, and taking risks that advance equity and inclusion.  

My Tip of the Day: Work-life alignment matters more than work-life balance, and self-care is key to productivity and happiness.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?  I love getting lost in good books, joyful moments with my boys, and the Berkeley hills. In 2000, I stopped out of college and moved to Salvador, Brazil with a backpack, a book of Portuguese verbs and the name of an NGO I hoped to work for (which, it turned out, didn’t exist). The experience of getting lost repeatedly and of forging my way in a new city stretched me in ways that changed who I was, and shaped who I am.
