I was born with the travel bug, because of my nomadic parents who moved from Manchester, England to Karachi, Pakistan and back again while stopping at all the countries in between the two continents. I moved to Virginia Beach, USA when I was sixteen and then moved to Washington, D.C. to attend George Mason University. While in college I traveled to St. Petersburg, Russia on a scholarship to study the arts. I also traveled and lived in Sevilla, Spain for two months to study Spanish culture and langauge. I have traveled all over Europe, as well as, west Africa. Other recent places I have visited include the Caribbean Islands, Ireland, Guatemala, El Salvador and most states in the USA. I speak Spanish, Urdu, Punjabi and beginners Arabic. I love’s culinary treats, coffee, arts, social justice, activism and languages–which I am always tries to expand on when traveling!

I have also worked with the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution as a graduate research assistant focusing on development and religious conflicts. Through these important opportunities and experiences, I have expanded my networks of religious organizations and policy makers.

I am writing because of your past studies in Russia and your interest in youth and the arts.  I have been asked to help find global partners for a very exciting initiative that aims to empower adolescent girls around the world.   Specifically, I was asked if I had any contacts in Russia.  So I wondered if you could help.  The project is called Mighty Fingers-Facing Change.  You can read more about it here: http://www.mightyfingersfacingchange.com/about-the-project.html

 

Kelly Sullivan is the artist and founder of Mighty Fingers-Facing Change.  You can get a sense of what they are looking for from one of my latest email exchanges with Kelly:

 

We are launching our campaign in just a few weeks and working hard to firm up our international hosting locations. TBA Global in NY City is handling our media/social outreach and we are expecting a good deal of media buzz and a strong number of supporters to follow the project as it travels. The girls around the world that participate in it will be empowered by it, and will remember their connection to it forever. It will also provide additional exposure for [hosting organization] to a global like-minded audience. Our funding campaign for the project runs from September 15th - November 15th. We can begin to arrange itinerary details for travel in 2013.

 

Hosting organizations need to:

* Assist in providing accommodations for our team of 4 (painter, writer, video artist and production assistant) for one week. [This could be homestays or assistance in locating inexpensive, safe accommodations.]

* Assist us in facilitating the participation of approximately 30 girls, ages 13 - 17. We can accommodate a larger number of participants if there is funding and their facility can accommodate it. Several participants must be willing to be filmed and photographed as they participate, as we will be uploading video from each location so that supporters and participants can follow the progress. 

* Help to familiarize our team with local customs, and provide translation services. 

* Assist in creating a small celebration of community that will wrap up the project in each location. 

* Assist in spreading the word of this collaborative project through their organization's media outlets. 

Do you know of any groups, clubs or organizations that could facilitate such a collaboration?  A girl scout group, leadership club, church youth group, mentoring initiative, art club or any other kind of group that works with teenage girls.  If so, can you give me some contact information or reach out to them on my behalf?  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Be well and many thanks!

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our indian culture and traditional.
We created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for a genuine reason or a false reasons for any reason.But this the time to realize that we are one and naturally interconnected with each other which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of our breaths the source is same without any discrimination of religion and boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable ,respectable .
We should follow the nature's rule ,non violence .peace ,god has given us a human life not for destruction but to look after the wellbeing of all living life.
I shall be happy if we could be a friend.

Sana
Noticed what you are doing.
A large intgrated church in Brooklyn NY had a learning center that handled around 800 people for free in ESL GED and life skills. When had graduation the Muslim women would be in full dress. I would watch 4,000 from every race in the world cheering.
How ironic that within one mile from the UN we could do that. Sadly that center ran out of funds but the movie and site is still up www.downtownlearningcenter.org. There is a breathtaking video
We just launched an NGO to replicate what we learned there and a UNESCO PPN Digital Story Telling Contest for Youth.
God Bless Your Work
