Belated Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!! It has been a really long time since I wrote an update so I decided that now is as good as time as any to let you all know how I have been. Seattle is well...rainy, hence the title of the email, but I am actually starting to get used to it. Most of the time it is drizzle and you don't even need an umbrella. Other than the cold and the rain I am really liking Seattle. So below are some quick blurbs about some of the things going on with me. More importantly I would love to hear what is going on in your worlds so drop me an email or send me an instant message...better yet call...

OneWorld Now!

For those that may not know OneWorld Now! is the name of the non profit that I am working at for this year. OneWorld Now! is a global leadership program for high school youth and is partners with IIPP the fellowship program that I am apart of. It has been a really great 3 months and I have learned SOOOO much in this short time and I am looking forward to what else I will be learning. Working with high school students and high schools is not easy but we have some really great students this year and I am happy to be apart of their development. You can learn more about OneWorld Now! at

The Bridge

The Bridge is a leadership training program with the YMCA and Seattle Works that gives tools to 20 and 30 somethings about board service that I participated in earlier this year. It was really interesting as in addition to the information about Non profits, Public boards and even budgeting we received two assessments about our personalities and our working styles. I've had other assessments done but it was nice to refresh my memory on my working style and personality. Also Seattle Works is great because they are a resource for 20 and 30 somethings about volunteering, events and more. I need to use this source more...

Urban League

Through a fellow fellow, I love saying that, I was introduced to the Seattle Urban League's Young Professionals group and have become involved. It's a nice group of like minded people in the Seattle area and trust after spending 5 weeks straight recruiting in high schools it was nice to see some adults =)

Homecoming 2006

Gosh I can't finish this email without mentioning Homecoming. I was in Atlanta for homecoming and I had a great great time. For those I did see, it was great seeing you and catching up even if it was for a minute. For those I didn't see, especially professors, it was a crazy weekend and no parking. I didn't even step on campus until Sunday it was so busy around the AUC. So hopefully the next time I am in town I can visit.

Well that is all for now. Have a great Holiday season! Best of luck to all those in school taking finals and writing papers! and Thank you!
