Ummmm, are Y'all made of magic??!! Last night was absolutely incredible! Not only was being able to speak to Francine one of the most memorable experiences, but I also had the opportunity to meet one of the managers of the Grand Bohemian hotel to discuss purchasing complimentary sized items for their guests!! What a MAJOR account that will be for me! I'm definitely going back to seal that deal.
I don't know how y'all do what you do, but I appreciate it with all my breath.
Sisters....I want to take this moment to simply say THANK YOU!!!
I've had to sit back and take a look upon the journey I'm on and reflect upon the "places" (situations) I've encountered.
I've often told clients in the past that some people can jump on the interstate and go from A-Z without any delays or detours. Others are faced with many obstacles which take them off the interstate and travel the many side roads. Those on the side roads are given an opportunity to learn new ways and see new things/places we would've otherwise missed traveling the interstate.
Well I'm the one who had to take the side roads. Along my journey I discovered my heart and brain hungered to release my creative gifts. Recently I was granted an opportunity to build upon these gifts by developing a solid & sound foundation courtesy of MAKERS UNITED, NEST, QUIRE, & other supporting entities.
I look forward to utilizing the tools and skills I've garnered to build my "business" 😄😄😄 and arrive at Point Z!
*(by the way....my Point Z is NYC 😉)
Again MANY THANKS!!!
One of the benefits Indego provides to artisan partners who are interested are onsite yoga classes. Here are some of the Imbera Heza (formerly Same Sky/Avega) women with a Rwandan yoga instructor. Taking a break from weaving the Raffia baskets you see on the side!
I want to thank you for your generous gift that made my education attainable. Through your support, I have accomplished much of what I never thought possible, especially attaining college education and in a great university outside Rwanda.
I had dropped out of high school because my parents could not afford to pay the school fees. My parents are peasant farmers and have a lot of children to take care of. When I was accepted into this scholarship program, it felt like the door to my future opened and I worked hard to achieve highly academically.
"Same Sky restored my focus and dreams for the future. I have many dreams, and plans, and goals. I was able to buy a small piece of land so I can grow my food and always have vegetables."
"Same Sky has restored my dignity. Same Sky has afforded me electricity in my house. Same Sky feeds my children. I had nothing, and now I am a woman, a mother - I am someone."
