Gratitude and Goodbye for now!

I still remember the butterflies I had in my stomach almost two years ago as I sat in Hyderabad, India waiting for my Skype interview with Joshua. I had heard about Generation Waking Up and Pachamama on an online teleseries and I knew I had to be a part of it. Hearing the mission ‘to ignite a generation  of young people to bring forth a thriving, just, sustainable world’  felt deeply aligned with who I was and it was the kind of stand I wanted to contribute to with all my heart and soul.

And so it was! A few short months later I was flying to San Francisco, California to start a whole new life and an exciting new job as part of the Core Team of Generation Waking Up. I was so ready to learn and grow and help lay the foundation for this amazing organization to ‘lift off’ and expand to its full potential.

Throughout my time at GenUp, I have had the incredible privilege of witnessing first hand the magic that occurs when  young people come together to vision a new world. I am so grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to play and work with a team behind-the-scenes to make GenUp’s work in the world possible. From fundraising to communications to operations, I’ve had the extraordinary chance to be a part of a founding team that’s continually learning and surrendering boldly to the Great Unfolding of our mighty mission.

And now, after almost two full years, I have made the bittersweet decision to move on to the next adventure. Before I jump into the next  opportunity, I plan to take some time to reflect and listen to what my next calling might be — what my next steps may be to bringing forth a thriving, just, sustainable world.

GenUp, in my eyes, is a Wise Force on its own. One that brings the exact right people to the right task at the right time. And also knows when to let them go so they may take their gifts and skills to shine on in the next place when the time is right. I have complete faith in GenUp’s ability to grow and thrive in this next chapter.

I feel deeply connected to the GenUp and Pachamama family and will carry my relationships, the mission and this work with me wherever I go. Deep gratitude to all of you who have touched my life in infinite ways. Thank you for being my teachers, my friends, and my inspiration.
