When I first launched Everyday Ambassador in April 2011, I aimed to craft an EA philosophy that would clearly communicate an urgent need to focus on human relationships in a digital age.
To my delight, through comments online and conversations offline, I witnessed many instances of shared desire to think more critically and holistically about our global citizenship in this digital era, and I found many shining examples of Everyday Ambassadors – individuals who were ambitious and brave enough to attempt amazing feats of service, yet humble enough to reflect upon their process critically and constructively. However I have realized that if this community is to continue growing, we need more wo/man power to build the movement!
Therefore, today I am thrilled to announce to you the addition of two remarkable individuals to the Everyday Ambassador team: Chex and Jennifer. Thanks our growing team, the website will feature more ambassadors (and creative commentary on the topic) than ever before, our Facebook and Twitter outreach will foster more meaningful relationships, and our offline presence will continue to grow across campuses and among like-minded organizations.
Please join me in welcoming our team, and as always, thank you for being part of the community!
