For the next few weeks we will feature videos of Social Good Moms and members of our Global Team of 200 sharing why they love being a part of our community of moms.
The first mom that we’re featuring is Samantha Sophia. Follow her at @raisingself.
“I’m a mother, I’m a wife, I’m a corporate professional, I’m a blogger and I am a Global Team of 200 member. In my little Southern California neighborhood, you couldn’t imagine that there were any people in the world suffering from extreme poverty or inequality. I drive through manicured communities, sit in a modern office overlooking perfect skylines, and Instagram the abstract beauty of the hipster farm to table restaurant I went to with a gal pal for lunch. To see me now, you couldn’t imagine that just one generation ago, not a member of my family had ever gone to university. You can’t see that my seeming success is propped up by generations of women with no access to something as basic as an education.
I’m a Global Team of 200 member because I care about my global community, because I have a deep desire not to turn away from but face reality head on and be a part of a conduit for social change. I am a Global Team of 200 member because I believe our collective voices have power enough to move the mountains of adversity and struggle faced by our brothers and sisters across the world.”
