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.
