What an amazing and inspirational piece. Thank you for sharing. I recently had a similar "a-ha" moment and am working with an afterschool educational program focusing on preparing middle school students for high school, college and their careers. If this program is successful the non-profit I work with will create an entrepreneurship program as well. I currently reside in New Orleans where more than ever the youth needs role models and mentors who give a damn about them and want to see them succeed! I look forward to reading more about your year long apprenticeship and hope one day we could exchange ideas on how to spread this goodness across the world. Kudos to you girl for making a difference.
