The Three Musketeers most famous quote, “All for one, and one for all,” represents my life purpose. We are part of an interdependent human race; one where I find my greatest joy writing, speaking and championing for overlooked people. Three words define my purpose: uphold, uplift and unite.

Our world comprises many too weak to speak for themselves. They may be in a period of grief, disaster, or too poor to have political influence to reach an improved condition. I choose to UPHOLD these by offering to meet the most basic of needs – safety, human kindness, and physical needs.

Others are in a state of tedium. They live in the same way each day with little thought to the bigger, worldwide picture. I choose to UPLIFT – bring to higher consciousness – through beauty, edification, written and spoken words to increase mindfulness.

Still many more lack purpose. Their intentions are noble in wanting to do something, but aren’t sure how to go about achieving. I choose to UNITE by corporately developing ways of accomplishing benevolent tasks.

My dream is to impact the world especially via safe, accessible drinking water. Accomplishments so far include disaster relief, fundraising, and leading teams in human service. I’ll continue to write, speak, fund-raise, educate, and lead.

GOALS:
- Complete my communications degree to gain knowledge, make contacts and increase credibility
- Continue expanding my well-drilling fundraising from local (HealingHaiti.org) to national (Water.org)
- Philanthropy through profits from book sales
- Raise funds for 20+ wells worldwide
