Cultivating a Global Mindset ft. Beth Awalt

"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one." - St. Teresa of Calcutta.

This quote completely sums up my view of social justice. Today I'm speaking with Beth Awalt, the co-founder of The Starfish Foundation. After going on a mission trip to Ecuador, Beth was so moved that she began a non-profit to empower and equip schoolchildren there. Beth serves as a shining example of learning about an issue and taking concrete action steps to help solve it. Beth's story of beginning her non-profit and all of the struggles she encountered is fascinating and I'm honored to share it with you today!

  • Why Beth began The Starfish Foundation
