High School Assembly!

What a fun day yesterday!  My college friend Alison Doernberg, who is the Director of Public Purpose at Rye Country Day School, contacted me a couple months ago to see if I would come to her school to give a talk to their Upper School during assembly about the Nomads Clinic for a talk series on global citizenship.  I hadn't seen Alison since college graduation (1999!) and she reached out after seeing my pictures from Nepal!  Yay for the magics of social media!

I ended up talking about the Nomads Clinic, what true service means to me and even led all 400 kids in a meditation to get in touch with what it means to live a life of purpose and passion! I was so impressed with how attentive and engaged everyone was!  

After assembly, we had lunch with a group of students and faculties, then visited a 7th grade English class.  Everyone was so interested and asked me so many questions.  It was really fun!  The 7th graders even researched Nomads Clinic and my website beforehand and had a list of questions prepared!

Here are some pictures from the day:
