  Girls’ education is critical to growth. Providing girls an education helps break the cycle of poverty, as educated women are less likely to marry early and against their will; less likely to die in childbirth; more likely to have healthy babies; and are more likely to send their children to school.

Most who know me are aware that I love to dive in and discuss everything in great detail. A lot. To think deeply about where I have been in my life, about where I am right now and therefore where I am going. To examine and be aware of the imperfections of myself and of others, and then grow from there. If there is one thing I know to be true of myself, it is this. The thing is, however, that many people – both in my past and that are in my life now – find that I “push... Get the full story

Jordan Daly could be categorized as one of those 9 to 5ers turned do-gooders but to boil down the road she’s traveled thus far to a simple 2 step from one career to another would be a huge disservice and misrepresentation of her journey.

What might you remind yourself about being authentic? It’s very simple and its “I am enough” I am enough exactly where I am, right sitting here... Get the full story


This might sound like a shameless plug for SERENE considering I’m the lead for the New York Office, but I love SERENE Social. Do you ever see or observe a group of people and long to be a part of them? Not for any of the benefits you might receive from being connected to them, but just because they have each other, because you want to belong. I might have always felt that way, I might still feel that way at times as well, but never with SERENE. There’s no “you can’t sit with us” vibe or exclusivity about us.... Get the full story
