Somalia and Anemia

A recent survey shows that up to 50% of Somali women and girls are suffering from iron deficiency and Vitamin A deficiency. This is terrible news. Micro-nutrient deficiency has a wide range of consequences, including negative physical, developmental, and even mental ramifications. Physically, one can become blind from the lack of Vitamin A, a mineral that humans can obtain through animal sources. Studies done by the Rural Education Action Project (REAP) showed that elementary-aged children with… Continue

Embrace!

I decided to choose the social entrepreneurial venture Embrace to shadow. I first found out about Embrace when I watched CEO Jane Chen's talk on TED. Then I read more about Embrace from Ac**en Fund and the Stanford D. School. Embrace makes baby incubators that cost only $25 for third world countries. Traditional incubators cost more than $20,000!

When I'm 28

Ten years from now, I'll be 28.



By then, I want a close group of friends, a community of sorts, with like-minded people: full of passion, creativity, innovation. All ready to create, to discuss ideas, to change the world.



By then, I would have spent a year as an Ac**en Fund Fellow, working in third world countries in order to promote the ideas of social entrepreneurship, innovation, and patient capital.



I would have traveled the world, learning different cultures.… Continue

Innovation Tips

The innovation tip that I found most striking in Exhibit A is Paul Polak's tip: "think like a child – children have no limit to their thinking." Even though I am only 18 -- still barely on the border between childhood and adulthood -- I have stopped thinking like a child already. I like to think pragmatically, scientifically. I have become more used to following a set schedule in my every day life, not breaking out of schedule for the sake of comfort. I have lost my inclination to explore.… Continue

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
