i'M NOT SURE HOW, BUT...
A year after dropping out of Law School, I GOT A JOB AS COMMUNICATIONS ASSISTANT AT A NON-PROFIT THAT WAS TRYING TO HELP THE COMMUNITY WITH THE WATER PROBLEM AND OTHER SOCIAL ISSUES. They were great people, but not very tech-savvy.
for example, is the sweetest lady ever.
when she talks about something she really cares about,
SHE GETS THIS SUPER DETERMINED STRONG VOICE,
bubbling with passion and confidence
We need more leaders like her back in Peru.
almost always wears pigtails. some people thought she was a bit crazy for adopting every street dog she crossed paths with. She would bring up Chilca's street dog problem at some point at every single meeting.
My boss would get annoyed sometimes,
I STILL THINK SHE'S CRAZY AWESOME.
The non-profit published a "newspaper"
since there was no local press in chilca.
I Thought it was a great idea.
SO I really worked hard on making it great.
It doesn't look like a big deal,
BUT FOR cHILCA, IT KIND OF WAS.
So we got him paint and a wall
to paint a mural promoting an event called
"the peace parade"
His eyes lit up when I told him he could paint a wall on one of the main streets.
THat was only the beginning
He painted this last year
