Well I expect myself to be ready to answer the call to the Tokyo food crisis, and many other potential crisis's, with supplies, camera, and crew in hand.

I will be a broadcaster of some sort, using these skills to expose stories, and get exposure to places in need to get them the well deserved resources they need.

Eben Bayer

I chose to follow Eben Bayer as my hero to shadow. Choosing him as my

hero to shadow follows the theme of my first blog post. Don't fight

culture, change it. His ideas are to target things in culture that no

one really thinks about, or if they do it's a passing moment. We know

its bad but we let it happen. Such as, "this toxic white stuff", or as

majority will know it as, Styrofoam. Styrofoam is everywhere, not just

in packaging, but in our coffee cups, our walls,… Continue

Don't fight culture.

Don’t fight culture (If people cook by stirring their stews, they’re

not going to use a solar oven, no matter what you do to market it. Make

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem?
