Rewrite Beautiful would like to say congrats to our Board Secretary, Lindsey Teichman who got accepted to Grad School last week! Lindsey will be studying Global Public Health at Boston University this Fall 2011! Boston is blessed to have this beautiful girl on their turf because not only is Lindsey a smart cookie, but she is one of the kindest people I know.
Lindsey’s road to Grad School began when she visited Uganda “On a hot day in June” ;) (Inside joke). She saw the way the people lived, that their lack of the basic water, food and 25 cent band-aids was devastating their country. She loved the peoples optimism and faith that things would change, but she knew she couldn’t just leave them, she needed to return and do something impact their lives in a strategic way. After doing some research Lindsey discovered that she could help in a big way. Her degree in Public Health will allow her the opportunity to help the people in Africa to help themselves by developing systems with their own resources (in other words to be self-sustaining.)
Lindsey has played a huge part in Rewrite Beautiful. She has helped sculpt the vision, plan events and has even stepped up to be the on-call counselor when things get sticky. We’re so blessed to have this beautiful girl on our team and now Boston is too!
Keepin’ it Beautiful,
