Introducing myself and my journal

My Passions:
Latin America, working for social justice/change, creating/participating in grassroots networks, exploring the world and meeting fascinating people, and spending time with my 4-legged companions

My Challenges:
Too many to name....every day there are new and inspiring challenges, and I'm thankful for each and every one of them! A day without challenges is like Portland with no rain.

My Vision for the Future:
Will have to think about how to articulate this coherently...

My Areas of Expertise:
Luckily, I think these happen to overlap with My Passions!

What's your vision for the 4

What's your vision for the 4 legged companions? I love our four legged, too.

Seriously, do you work in Latin America?

Hi Paulina, I don't really

Hi Paulina,
I don't really have a vision for those....I just love spending time with both my own at home, and volunteering at animal shelters. I find animals bring me a level of peace and relaxation that nothing else can!

I worked in Latin America until 2 months ago, when I moved back from the US!

How about you?

Hey Lenana!

I see you're from Portland. Welcome to the community!

What part of Latin America did you work in? Do you volunteer at the OHS?

By the way, if you would like some additional tips on making the most of what our site has to offer I encourage you to look through our Getting Started Guide, available here:

Hey Jennifer, I was in Chile

Hey Jennifer,

I was in Chile for the past 7 years working on poverty issues, and just moved back to Portland a couple of months ago. I used to volunteer at OHS, although I don't right now.

Thanks for the Guide, I will check it out!

Take care!
