Ms. Global Empowerment
Hello, I’m currently a Peace Corps volunteer serving in S. America. I’m 1 year into my 2 year contract. I currently teach 150 HS students entrepreneur, business advice two associations (ice cream shop and restaurant), hold a teenage mother’s group, and lead a girls empowerment club. I’m passionate about promoting women in business in developing countries.

Title: Economic Development
Length of Employment: 2 yrs
Big Life Wins:
•Implemented entrepreneur course into school’s curriculum, taking it from a 7-student club to a required course (150 students). •I’m in the process of starting a grant with my teenage mother’s group that would build a space for women to have free access to computers and Wi-Fi and at night be a daycare for teenage mothers to attend night school.
Post MBA Goal:
My long-term goal is to start my own business and base it in developing countries to provide women with jobs and leadership positions. When women have their own source of income, they’re able to gain their independence. The industry I’d like to enter is primarily marketed towards females and so I’d position my business as a women for women business.
