Lessons Learned and Positive Vibrations

More Than Me, an education and girls’ empowerment non-profit is gaining notoriety
through its guerrilla-style marketing, inspiring hundreds of people to write “I am Abigail” on
their foreheads and posting the photos on Facebook.

This really begs the question, “Who the heck is Abigail?”

Abigail was an orphan in West Point, Liberia. You may have read her letter in a previous
article here on the Huffington Post. At six, she was left with prostitutes. She learned to
work the streets in order to get access to drinking water and food. Education was not an
option.

Then Abigail met Katie Meyler, the founder of More Than Me, an organization dedicated
to getting girls off the streets and into schools. Katie and Abigail became fast friends, and
More Than Me has raised the money to put Abigail through school. She is learning to
bake, and aspires to one day be a…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

I’m going with something completely different this week. This isn’t film, it’s not even with my professional digital camera. This was taken with my point and shoot camera in the mirror.

I am Abigail. You are Abigail. Every one of us is Abigail…

Abigail was an orphan in West Point, Liberia. At six, she was left with prostitutes. She learned to work the streets in order to get access to drinking water and food. Education was not an option.

Then Abigail met Katie Meyler, the founder of More Than Me, an organization dedicated to getting girls off the streets and into schools. Katie and Abigail became fast friends, and More Than Me has raised the money to put Abigail through school. She is learning to bake, and aspires to one day be a Senator, so she can, in turn, help other girls like her.

Why are we also “Abigail”?

Abigail could be you. Abigail could be your sister, your niece, your student, or your neighbor. Remember, we live in a global community; there is no “me” without “we”, Abigail is because you are, and you are because Abigail is.

Join the community. When you’ve done that, help the community grow by spreading our story. And most of all, get inspired.

Vote, we have until December 4th to generate as many votes as humanly possible!

What would it look like to have all children safe and in schools and fed?

Love and light to each and every one of you

I’m Abigail, You’re Abigail, We’re Abigail!

Meet Abigail.

Abigail was an orphan in West Point, Liberia. You may have read her letter in a previous article here on the Huffington Post. At six, she was left with prostitutes. She learned to work the streets in order to get access to drinking water and food. Education was not an option.

Then Abigail met Katie Meyler, the founder of More Than Me, an organization dedicated to getting girls off the streets and into schools. Katie and Abigail became fast friends, and More Than Me has raised the money to put Abigail through school. She is learning to bake, and aspires to one day be a Senator, so she can, in turn, help other girls like her.

More Than Me has been entered in a competition where they could potentially win a million dollars. That is a lot of money and could build schools to help even more girls get off the streets and into school. It’s true what they say, empower a girl and you’re empowering the community.

Meet Abigail and Katie here.

And you can vote now here. It only takes a few seconds.

Spread the word!

Make a difference and do something that’s more than you and more than me!

 

Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration

This Special Photo Challenge came at the right time for me. It came just as a great gust of inspiration came at me… I love taking photos and have made the conscious decision to be a photographer and take photos of things that matter to me, mainly social documentary. I’m also finding inspiration in other types of photography, portraiture and commercial photography – which is something I never saw myself doing until now. Doors are opening up for me and I’m making the conscious choice to step into them, stepping into me and my greatness. It’s funny because a few days ago I even wrote a blog on the very same theme of stepping into your own greatness and the importance of making the conscious choice to do so.

Here is a shot that was taken while on a photo shoot today… It’s inspired me to open myself up to even greater possibilities.

All of this just leads me to ask, what else is possible?

Eglinton – 1 (Toronto #3)

 

I spent the afternoon on an Afro-Caribbean strip of Eglinton. One of my favourite things about Toronto is the fact that you can walk from one street to another and see several cultures and communities. Growing up in the east end of London, there is something very familiar about being around so many different nationalities and cultures.
