Paula Goldman – Imagining Ourselves
Paula Goldman recently launched the Imagining Ourselves project with the International Museum of Women to connect and inspire young women around the world to contribute positive solutions and help their communities.
As Global X found out, she is also writing a book on how social causes tip, finishing her PhD at Harvard and teaching at Berkeley!
In this short interview, she tells the story of Mayerly Sanchez, a young girl from a poor family in the outskirts of Bogota, in "a community besieged by endemic violence."
Due to gang violence, Mayerly Sanchez lost her best friend at age of 12 and launched a children’s movement for peace. She received so much media attention that her organization had a significant impact during the national elections.
As a result, Mayerly Sanchez was nominated twice at the age 14 for the Nobel Peace Prize. The reason of her success: "She never doubted that she could make a difference!"
