This lovely young woman came up to me at a party, half cut.
She had a big glass of red wine in her hand, and a big grin on her face.
“Hey, you’re the school guy!” she said.
“Ya, I guess your right!” I replied.
“I am going to build a schooooool” she said with a good wine buzz tone in her voice.
I didn’t believe her. But she did. She built a school. And fast.
Shortly after, she told me she was going to work for Change Heroes. I told her that we didn’t have any positions available. She said she would do it for free. And she did. She moved to Vancouver and started interning… well not really interning… It would be more accurate to say she just started coming to the office and working. For free.
It didn’t take long before we realized our free volunteer was irreplaceable, and we wanted her to be there even more.
Now, she works for us full time running all of our social media, coming up with campaign ideas, and inspiring people from all over to build schools.
This is an article she just published on Elite Daily (it’s her rendition of that drunken night and worth a read).
I am beginning to learn that what this girl says… happens.
I am looking forward to hearing what’s next.
Here’s to you Reanne. Well played
