A crash course in changing the world.


What I will have to pass on.

I've thought a lot about this recently, because I have had the time to pause and reflect about my life thus far. What kind of legacy do I want to leave? What do I want to pass on, knowledge to the younger generation?


As far as I can tell, nonprofit fundraising will still be relevant, so I have my book to pass on. My book is called "The Wild Woman's Guide to Fundraising" and it is my hope that women of color all over the world will be able to use it to gain knowledge about how to be empowered and stand up and fundraise for their cause, so that they can become leaders in their communities. My blog tells more about how you can fundraise, and it's totally funny and free. http://wildwomanfundraising.com


I am also creating a fundraising game based around this book, to teach girls and women how easy fundraising can be.


I created some slideshows about fundraising and finding a job on Scribd and Slideshare, I've had over 3,000 reads on Scribd alone, so if you want to see those, there they are. http://www.scribd.com/MazarineTreyz


I have my art to pass on, and make people happy. It is at http://melisander.org


I have my knowledge to pass on about how to make encaustic art. http://melisander.org


I have knowledge about how to write poetry, and I would recommend Larry F**in's The List Poem for how to do that.


I have my exuberance and enthusiasm because I don't work for anyone but myself, and this is what I would teach.


Don't look for approval.


Don't work for anyone else.


Don't do anything that makes you unhappy for more than 3 months.


Don't take s*** from people.


Fight. Travel. Learn. Be curious. Grow. Be Wild. Breathe.


This is what I would pass on.

Encaustic is an ancient beeswax painting art from Egypt.

I ask that women of colour step up because right now in nonprofits in America it's very biased towards white women getting involved in social justice, and we need to have people who are leading the black community, the hispanic community, the asian community, the American Indian community and so on, we need people who know what oppression people are going through, and how to best help stop it. We need more diverse leadership in America.

ah ok it makes sense as coming from the perspective of someone in america writing to others in america though for a reader like me from india it was a bit confusing
Comment by Mazarine on April 30, 2010 at 12:20am
Ah right, i understand. Perhaps to give it an indian perspective, I wonder what kind of ethnicities are oppressed in India, if the untouchable caste could rise?
Comment by A.V.Koshy on April 30, 2010 at 12:29am
yeah the issue is not about women of colour but of the poor the downtrodden the voiceless the marginalized the oppressed the persecuted the tortured the damned
lol - i would think its the same everywhere but maybe not - guess in america first we need community representation becasue it's a well off society and then only can we move into class issues of representation
Comment by A.V.Koshy on April 30, 2010 at 12:31am
i wouldnt know really not having been to america just an educated guess and b we i meant primarily indians but indians are rather vocal so i guess they are already pretty well prepresented for good or ill

If you don't mind me asking, what caste are you?

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

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
