Guatemala and the time spent there laid the ground-work for what is now Glow Up Media International. I had the privilege to travel to Guatemala in 2011 & 2013 with the University of Colorado Denver in conjunction with Peace Jam and Nobel Peace Prize Laurette, Rigoberta Menchu Tum and her foundation. I returned in 2015 where I was able to make a donation to the Pavarotti Education Center from the sale of a photo calendar that I designed using the photos from my travels. These experiences taught me the importance of speaking up and using our skills, voices, and platforms to work for peace and justice.
We often think we must do something BIG to make a difference, but doing something good, no matter how small can make a big difference.
