In the midst of these challenging, turbulent times, I find life to be simply amazing. I see growth, change, and peace beginning to grow in unexpected places and from unexpected voices. I believe that it is my responsibility to be part of these changes. I am the owner of Anoothi US, a social business that partners with village women in India utilizing microenterprise and fair trade practices. I also co-direct a 501(c)(3) that raises funding and awareness on behalf of orphaned, abandoned and economically deprived children in India. To help pay bills, I have the good fortune of working part-time at Pomegranate Place, a women's community center in Denver. And I am attempting to publish a book of poetry by year-end. Life is full, rich and wonderful even as it is painful and tumultuous.
