It's time to make the leap from one decade to the next! Over the last 6 years, my life has gained a vibrancy I could never imagine. Imagine Scholar has been a place of profound social connection, intellectual exploration, creative output, and an ever growing source of positivity and inspiration in my life. Thus, each year, on my birthday, I strive to pay it forward, in some way, back to the amazing space of Imagine Scholar and all those involved.
This year, I want to raise funds to celebrate Norman's (an Imagine Scholar) amazing accomplishment: being selected by his university to attend Watson Institute in Boulder, CO to develop project management skills to bring his water accessibility project to life (back in SA). He received a 85% scholarship from Watson to attend, but had to come up with the rest himself - on top of other miscellaneous expenses (visa, flights, etc.).
So, send me off into my thirties in a meaningful way and contribute to this fund. Need some more reasons? Here's why you should contribute:
1. Norman will get to go to Watson Institute and have a transformative experience!
2. I'll take every donation as a vote towards how awesome being in your thirties is
3. Norman will apply his experience back in his rural community to increase water sustainability and accessibility
4. I will give you a virtual hug
