Global Education - Who or what has inspired you?

My passion for global education and my love for Africa started when I was so fortunate as to meet Dr. Jane Goodall several years ago. While Dr. Jane is best known for her work with the chimpanzees in Gombe, Tanzania in Africa over forty years ago, she is also well-known in many other ways. One of the most important honors that has been bestowed on Dr. Jane (of many such honors) is that as a United Nations' Messenger of Peace.

Dr. Jane travels over 300 days a year, and her passions… Continue

Yes, Jane is amazing. One of her recent books is on the same theme.

I loved seeing you, too, but I so hope we will have more time together in the future. It was way too short this time.

Hi Julene!
It was great seeing you in Cupertino! Looking forward to assisting with the "Road Shows" you put together.

Here's a bit of Global trivia:
I purchased this cookbook a few years ago from one of my favorite restaurants in the world, "Blossoming Lotus", entitled, VEGAN WORLD FUSION CUISINE. As I was reading through it the other day, I noticed that Jane Goodall wrote the two page "forward". What an incredible inspiration to global awareness and healing on a very basic level - the food we chose to put into our bodies and how it impacts the world! I'm on a personal adventure in raw and organic foods! :)
