MY PURPOSE

My journey to creating this very donation page has been meticulously planned by the universe and all the good energies that encompass it. It was over a meal with two friends that I learned about LEAP (http://www.leapsummerprogram.org/) and its humbling goals to empower and educate Palestinian Youth in Lebanon. LEAP's commitment to nurturing the intellectual growth and creative curiosity of their budding students, ignited my own passion to reach out and become a small part of a beautiful revolution of change, love and growth.

Every great leader is continuously a great learner. I believe I have so much more to learn and so much more humility to gain from the people I have yet to meet in my life. LEAP provides not just an experience to help empower the youth in Palestinian refugee camps but it encourages me and even dares me to create a lifelong commitment to creating and maintaining justice for Palestinian youth and all oppressed people.

I don’t wish to just volunteer. I am committed to being a part of a renaissance to educate and empower the youth to become centered, global citizens that are not defined by their present situation but defined by their qualities, efforts and strengths. I am looking to play a significant, passionate role in an environment like these refugee camps in which creativity, the savoring of knowledge and progress are embraced and elevated not just by the students but by the camp coordinators and leaders as well.


MY HOPES THAT YOU WILL JOIN ME

I humbly ask you to come on this journey with me through my daily reflections in the refugee camps of Tyre, Lebanon.

I hope that you may be inspired to create change in your life and others by following my posts via a soon-to -be blog for this trip.

Your donations will be for my expenses to journey to Tyre, Lebanon and live with my students for one month.

My gratitude for any and all donations is immense and overflowing.

Love, Cyn
