Earlier this year I saw a call-out from Water for People’s CEO Ned Breslin to travel with him and report from the field about the water crisis. I love to travel and report about global development issues, so without a moment of hesitation I decided to apply. In fact, what was really compelling about the opportunity was this:
You write about and/or film anything you want. The good, the bad, the ugly. Whatever—all with no Water For People pre-approval, editing etc. It’s yours to say and reflect on how you feel about it, how you see it.
I decided to apply because obviously I didn’t have anything to lose, but so much to gain if I was chosen. On Valentine’s Day I was told I was the winner and couldn’t have been happier. I am Water for People’s “Blogger Out to Change the World“! The official announcement went live last Thursday.
I will be traveling to India with Ned and Water for People this fall and will be there for a full two weeks. In that amount of time there will be a ton of insights, to be sure.

I can’t wait to share everything I learn about water and sanitation with all of you later this year!
The more I travel, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I can share!
