It's Wednesday! Do you know what wednesday brings? Woman Owned Wednesday! Where we highlight a business founded by a Woman, and the woman behind the magic.
Today im talking about Elizabeth Green, the founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Chalkbeat, a non-profit news organization that focuses on one of America's key topics, education. More importantly, “The effort to improve schools for all children, especially those who have historically lacked access to a quality education” With a passion for journalism and educational equity, Elizabeth Green founded Chalkbeat with the mission coming from Green’s belief that a more informed education conversation will spark tangible improvements in public schools.
Primarily those in low-income communities.
Today they have seven different locations across the U.S, and are constantly aiming to expand. Hats off to Elizabeth on this one! The future thanks you.
A cup of tea a day, keeps the stress away! Literally.. studies have shown that tea actually reduces stress, AND black tea even reduces blood pressure. We all need a little help managing our stress sometimes. ☕️ 🍃
In Sunday's we trust! It's stormy over here in Orlando, Florida today. The perfect weather to snuggle up and catch up on my favorite shows. Right now I'm cuddled up in bed planning my work for the next week though! What's everyone's favorite thing to do on a rainy day? ☔️
My main inspiration for becoming a digital nomad, was so i can work hard from any location. I get to mix two of my favorite things into one, travel, and the hustle. Where’s all my other digital nomads at? What inspired you to take this journey?
THIS is the kind of sight I like to see! Anyone thinking of starting a food blog, and wondering “Where do I begin?” building a website is the first step, and the good news is, I can build it for you, exactly how you want it! Contact me for a free consultation, Leigha@lmva.us
I love this idea for a “Good Newspaper” sometimes it’s hard to stay positive when there’s so much bad news being constantly shared. I want to hear about the good stuff too! Who else would love a newspaper that shares only good news? 🙌🏼
Happy Wednesday, and happy Women Owned Wednesday! Today is about Christina Sass, the Co-founder and President of Andela, a company that specializes in training software developers. Andela gives companies, ranging from startups, to Fortune 500 organizations, access to the top 1% of global tech talent in Africa. Helping shape these high-potential developers into technical leaders, and pairing them with companies accordingly. Christina Sass began building educational programs in Georgia (where she’s originally from) and has since started schools and youth programs in the U.S., China, The Palestinian Territories, Kenya, and Nigeria.
CNN has called it, “The startup that’s harder to get into than harvard”. Andela was founded on the idea that brilliance is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not.
Over 20,000 aspiring programmers have already joined Andela, and their goal is to train 100,000 world-class software developers in Africa over the next ten years.
I'm forever inspired by these amazing women! 🌎👭

Греция , остров Крит 🗺
🔹Крит – крупнейший остров Греции с разнообразным рельефом: побережье покрывают многочисленные пляжи с мелким песком, например Элафониси, а во внутренних районах высятся горные хребты, в том числе Лефка-Ори ("Белые горы"). 🔹Рядом с самой высокой горой этого хребта, Идой, находится вход в Идейскую пещеру, в которой согласно греческой мифологии родился Зевс. 🔹В столице Крита, Ираклионе, стоит посетить знаменитый Археологический музей с коллекцией минойского искусства

Fridays in my life have taken a new shape, I recently started volunteering at a local non-profit urban farm that grows produce, and educates and equips the surrounding community in Orlando to garden themselves. 🌱🌱 Not only is this good for the soul, but there are so many benefits to supporting your local community! When local businesses flourish, the spirit of your town grows. I also love knowing where my food comes from. No chemicals, no GMOS. It’ll be so fulfilling to make a meal and know I helped grow the ingredients!
Friday mornings are now designated to give my brain a break and get my hands dirty.
Who else enjoys taking breaks outdoors to reset?
