2020

In 2020, I will either have a career in politics or international business. By this time I will have a family and when the Alchemy calls me to help the Tokyo food crisis I will be able to assist in one of two possible ways. The first by being a politician is through spreading awareness and governmental support. If I’m in business I could assist via fundraising to help combat the food crisis.

Donnel Baird

I'd love to shadow donnel Baird because his work in creating jobs motivated to cut energy cost for underprivileged people is very Nobel cause on a topic that is very over looked.

Where will I be in 2020?

I 2020 I hope to be serving my country as a commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps. I hope to have a large impact on the world by going forth on humanitarian missions that I get deployed on as well as disaster relief seeing that these are two primary missions of the Marine Corps. I will be able to help build countries and train their militaries and their infrastructures so that they can thrive and rise out of the economic and infrastructural situation that they are in.…

Where I'll be in 2020

In 2020, I will be a Army officer which means there could be a huge range of possibilities of where I would be and what I would be doing. At that time, I will picture myself in a foreign country contributing and leading soldiers against enemies of the United States or possibility being a part of peacekeeping operations. I would have a huge impact on fellow soldiers and natives of the country that I'm deployed at.

Jay Cousins as My HERO

My hero of social innovation that I am shadowing online will be Jay Cousins from AfriGadget because of the simple yet effective tools he created that can innovate African society one child at a time. One simple example is the Betabook which is a white board book that can help promote learning within Africa. I will keep up with them online by liking the AfriGadget page on facebook.

Economic Sustainability

This is important to get right because many societies have the tendency to build their economies or markets on a process or resource that will not be there for the long-term or only allow short-term benefits. To help countries, especially those in Africa, continue to progress it is important to get this secret right. It will help the population be motivated to improve their standard of living and overall contribute towards their economic goals.

Living off of two dollars a day

Many people take for granted how valuable food, water, and shelter is to not only African countries but worldwide. For example China has the largest economy in the world however, from the large population it is extremely difficult for all citizen to have the sources needed for survival.

Social innovaters

I can directly relate to "Go where the action is", because in order to be successfu you cant sit around you have to be activly searching for social issues aroound the world. Once you find it you have to go to where the action is, the point of friction in order to make quick responsible decisions to benefit your cause. The best leaders lead from the greatest point of friction.

Where am I?

In the year 2020 I would have finished my bachelors in Political Science. I am located in New York visiting my family during vacation leave I was given with the Army. My family and I are sitting around the table eating pizza when all of a sudden when alchemy calls me to help the Tokyo food crisis. I immediately head to JFK to fly out to begin helping Tokyo.

Social Innovator

Mabel Van Oranje is the Social Innovator that I am going to follow. She is the founder of “Girls Not Brides: The Global Partnership to End child Marriage.” She is involved with many more things such as the Elders. Oranje tries to educate and empower women so they have more of a say in their community. Empowering women can have many benefits including an economic one. The way that I am going to follow this hero is I am going to follow her website. I chose this person because ACT1.

See and do the Obvious

See and do the obvious can help me change the world. It can help me change the world because a lot of people over look the obvious things in life. They assume that others are acting on these things so they do not do them. Sometimes the obvious and easy things can have the biggest impact on people. #LEARN1

To be forced to live like people in developing worlds it will quickly change one opinions about sending aid, helping, etc.

Constraint

"What you have matters more than what you lack (If you've got a bicycle, consider what you can build based on that, rather than worrying about not having a car, a truck, a metal shop.)"

These words of wisdom are important to me because if you don't a****s your current situation thoroughly and base your future decisions from it, you may mis-perceive a concept and make a poor choice because of it. In order to help change the world, we need to take one step at a time in the correct…

10 years form now

I don't have to imagine where I will be in 10 years. I will be doing what I do now. I will be an advocate in politics for Veterans in General and Disabled Veterans in particular. Hopefully I will be a lobbyist in Washington DC, Columbia, SC or a staffer on either the Senate or House Veterans Affairs Committee. I will be living in either Washington DC or in Charleston, SC. As for the Tokyo Food Crisis, it all depends on the US policy in solving the crisis. If they are allies and the US helps,…

Island Water

The Social Innovator I chose is 'Aulani Wilhelm who is the founder of Island Water. 'Aulani Wilhelm is also a Stanford Social Innovation Fellow. Island Water helps provide and build fresh water supplies for islands surrounded by salt water. Water is the one thing need to survive by everyone and everything. Most people do not think that water is an issue on islands surrounded by water. However when that island is surrounded by saltwater, it is unusable as drinking water. Desalination methods…

Teach the Creative Process

Provide skills, not just finished technologies. The current revolution in design for developing countries is the notion of co-creation, of teaching the skills necessary to create the solution,

rather than simply providing the solution. By involving the community throughout the design process, you can help equip people to innovate and contribute to the evolution of the product. Furthermore, they acquire the skills needed to create solutions to a much wider variety of problems. They are…

The future awaits me...

In the next ten years, I can see many wondrous roads to follow. These roads have no ending but opportunities of unique and diverse complexity. I believe that I will find myself in a position of authority with the US Government helping to stabilize regions and provide for democracy in areas of the world that deserve it most. Every dream is achievable through strength and numbers, but only those who pursue it with ambition will make the cut. My aim is to provide those who work for me with the…

Could you do it?

Living on two dollars can seem like a daunting task. Could it actually be achievable though? I chose this secret because I feel that it opens our eyes to a different world. Most could only imagine in our world what its like to hold $100 or less, but truly there are those who hold even less; sometimes for periods longer than a year. The struggle is real and at the end of the day, we in the western world may not truly understand the crisis looming in our own hearts if we can't consider the…

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

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.

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.
