My first interaction with Crossing Thresholds (CT) was in 2011. From that time forward when I hear of the word Crossing Thresholds, I reminisce on the great work they do to transform my community through education and providing sustainable opportunities to all.
I am inspired and grateful for the generosity of CT that has reached and healed wounds that only the act of compassion and love can heal. Their proactive efforts to respond consistently and find solutions will never be taken for granted.
To echo the words of a wise soul, "No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others – those who are wise acknowledge this help with gratitude."
I will not give myself the credit for being a wise soul at this juncture in my life. But with utmost confidence, I want to recognize Crossing Thresholds for its enormous support that has immensely contributed to my success in life today.
As a grateful beneficiary, I have been fortunate to be part of their scholarship program that helped me obtain my Bachelors Degree in Communications. Similarly, I have worked with them on various community projects that have been deeply satisfying and impactful.
One of the projects that positively impacted my professional growth was working on the film crew for Light Within the Cracks -- a documentary that showcased life in the Kibera Slum, directed and produced by Philip Ennis, Senior Producer at Phillip Ennis Production, a brilliant, creative individual.
Through Crossing Thresholds, I was also given the opportunity to work with a partner organization, the Wangari Maathai Foundation -- a not-for-profit organization in Kenya dedicated to nurturing young people to be leaders of courage and character. Through their connection with Crossing Thresholds, they are working to bring value-based education to CT schools and to raise environmental awareness for the children. In the face of the global environmental crisis, this is a critically important initiative.
Lastly, I am delighted that through the ten years of friendship with Crossing Thresholds, I am now their social media coordinator!! I am beyond excited to share with the world the great work that CT is doing.
