    Was there ever an incident in your life that shook your belief in giving? How did you get past it?

      I think my moment was when someone shamed me for going to Ghana to "make a documentary about issues there". Obviously I was naive and didn't think it through. I ended up doing a thesis on Islam instead because it interested me moreso than the infrastructure issues I saw there.
