House of Gaia

December 15th, 2012

12-15-12I met Maria “Lulu” Carter earlier this week. She flagged me down in her creatively painted minivan with a big red heart painted on its hood. I could tell from the moment she started talking that she was a very special woman. She has varied professional experience, multi-cultural background (born in Brazil, studied in Europe), and her ability to connect with people from all over the world make her a key part of Bee Gaia. Given her rich background, Maria has special interest and expertise in programs relating to the African Diaspora, education, and community service, thereby adding a unique dimension to House of Gaia programs. After our talk, she invited me to talk to the students at this center. After my short talk, she invited me back this coming Thursday, for a program to honor those affected by the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. It is an event I will certainly be a part of.
It is amazing just how much this passionately driven woman is accomplishing. The website, outlining her countless successes, is a must visit: www.houseofgaia.org
