The voices of new leaders

Proud to be an educator

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

Proud of the next generation of leaders.

I look forward to more time to help make dreams come true. In the last decade, I have worked, taught, learned, traveled, and developed students in many places with many people in many cultures. The journey has truly taught me that the world is getting smaller. All youth want a life of sustainability and happiness. Unfortunately, one of the bright young stars in these photos is gone, Ms. Jezel Best; she died suddenly recently. It is a sad reminder that no matter what age, we must live every day to the fullest as the days are not promised and we know not the day or the hour that our voice will be silenced.
