Audrey Blankenship is a 9 year old 3rd grader currently attending a fully remote remote elementary school. Her self identifies religion is Kindness. Audrey began her life as a ‘philanthropist’ by smiling at everyone in her path.
As we reflect on the year, let’s go forward remembering what we learned: we can count on each other. And, when we can count on each other to do the right thing, to make choices that are in the best interests of others, we can accomplish so much more.
Since I’m in the nonprofit industry, it made sense for me to continue to hone my skills and reflect my passion for nonprofit service. Now, with the global pandemic, volunteering is even more important across all industries.
And, so, I’ve learned that my own choices are unpredictable. Other’s choices are even more unpredictable. Now, I’d like to double-down and ride the changing tides of life with a zen-like attitude. I’d like to make choices I am proud of. I am the navigator of my life.
