How's it going?

I'm Kelsey. 


If I tell you about myself, will you return the favor?

I'd love to hear your story.

Straight from America's heartland, I was raised in that town every country song is about. You know the one. It's a great place to grow up and put down roots, but when it's time it's also a great place to leave.

My purpose? I'm of a very lucky minority in the world. To fully understand what I mean, please watch this video:  


I believe I have a responsibility to use my position positively. How? That's the mission, I suppose. 

So here I am, a twenty-something with an MBA. What will I do with this? Perhaps work for international development within an NGO, promote sustainability initiatives in corporate America, facilitate job growth in low-income communities, or even get my own bright idea to develop into a reality. Or run away to every corner of the globe I can get to committing random acts of kindness along the way. I guess we'll see, won't we? Like anything worth doing, it's a work in progress.

This is my purpose as I wander around the world and through life.  To do good with what I've been given. What's yours?
