The First Step
This blog is about my travels in the world, the projects I pursue, the interesting people I meet, and the lessons I learn. The sole purpose of this website is to share my experiences and give new insight to the places others have not yet traveled to, in hopes of inspiring people to step outside the comfort zone and explore the places they are foreign to.

Hey - congrats on this awesome opportunity!! This sounds amazing. I was wondering what you think about all of the ways your own country, the US, is unsustainable, and ways to fight for sustainability and more on a local level. What made you want to make change in Indonesia when the US is the one perpetuating capitalism and industrialization around the world in the first place? My thoughts are that maybe people in Indonesia wouldn't have to worry about being "sustainable" (does Indonesia contribute to many unsustainable practices worldwide in the first place?) or fight against industrialization if we in the United States were creating change at the root of the problem. What do you think?

Great question! The US unfortunately has many problems with sustainability due to many factors, the root being supply and demand. It seems that a large scale of outsourcing from suppliers with no consideration for sustainability of natural resources leads to environmental disaster, and it only escalates when trying to keep up with our large consumption of foods and goods.

I also believe in that quote of the Chinese Philosopher Laozi. I believe that you cannot get your goal in just a snap of your fingers. You have to work for it step by step so that the fruit of that hard work is sweet and delicious. You have to be more careful on what you want to achieve. I also believe that you are a good person and smart too because you care to other people and the environment. Since I just read this blog now I wonder where you are now. I hope you succeeded with your goals. Thank you and I hope I could read more of your post.

Before University of Colorado at Boulder I lived in Bali, Indonesia for two years and studied sustainable business at the Green School. I decided to leave Colorado in pursuit of another adventure, one that deserves to be documented every step of the way.
