Completion Counts - College Ambassador
It has been inspiration to me to be a member of the World Pulse platform and network. Listening to stories of so many women from around the world as they seek to become empowered has me to volunteer to become a 'College Ambassador' for the City of Riverside (California) helping young people not only to enroll, but stay in college. See http://www.college311.org/ (I hope your visit will give you some ideas of what you may wish to initiate in your communities. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has some funding involved in this initiative.)
Of course as my first day was today, I don't have any personal success stories to share. But I'm now going to be able to discuss what it takes to get into and stay in higher education in the US in the future. I would very much appreciate hearing back from those of you who might have an interest in learning more.
