Well it’s only a week til I board the plane and head off to Africa to participate in the Business Chicks Immersion & Leadership Program.
Yesterday saw me in ‘freak out’ mode with a missing passport and cancelled flights, but all’s well that ends well. Passport found including Uganda visa and yellow fever certificate, flights rebooked and all back on track.
A lovely little parcel arrived today too with a handmade notebook by the village partners to use as our journal on our trip along with the details of our Immersion Program and introductions to all the gorgeous girls who will accompany me on our adventure.
Business Chicks, like those going on this trip, and The Hunger Project believe that by supporting developing women leaders and creating a space for them to connect and stretch, they can make a difference in the world. Empowering women to be leaders in turn can help solve one of the biggest humanitarian issues of our time, hunger.
Hunger isn’t just a problem for those suffering from it, but a global issue that requires new ideas, thinking, partnership and ways to solve the underlying issues.
I’m so looking forward to being part of this journey, lending a hand and learning from each other, being part of something bigger, and finding a place where it’s safe to give anything a go!
I’m sure I’m going to learn so much more than I can possibly bring to the table on this trip.
Bring it on!
