Why Imagine Ethiopia 2010?

Children are incredibly inspiring to me. They are living, breathing possibilities waiting for an outlet for expression. Giving children in Ethiopia a chance at having an education is an opportunity to let those possibilities flourish to create a new and promising future for Ethiopia.

The journey to Ethiopia is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to experience what life is like in a developing country. It is a journey of spiritual growth that I am lucky enough to share with my Dad, Jonathan McCullough, who continually inspires me to be unreasonable and create possibilities wherever I can.

What possibility am I creating for myself and for this trip?

Through this trip, I am creating the possibility for myself to become a strong, independent, and creative leader in my local and global community.

All children have equal opportunity to express their ideas, be unreasonable, and create possibilities for their own life.

I want to create the possibility of providing a voice for the children of Ethiopia by meeting them, and understanding their needs and in doing so I will fulfill my need to take on more of my global mother responsibilities.

When am I most inspired?

I am most inspired when I witness random acts of kindness, when people act selflessly and do not look to be thanked.

when no child goes to bed hungry, or must work instead of going to school. Imagine 1 day when all children are granted the same opportunities in life. imagine1day being part of that solution.
