"Young Black and Everywhere,” initially started as a travel blog I created to show people that where you come from has no limitations on where you can go. What began as a blog is now destined to transform into a community abroad program. What made me want to create a project like this is due to the fact that a lot of youth in Oakland are not given the opportunity to travel outside of the Bay Area. Which leaves them with lack of perspective on the world and the various cultures that surround us.
I love how your project gives people a chance to grow their own projects & goals by learning from others, its a great "recycling the knowledge" process! I definitely, would love to participate in both giving and receiving information for my own project.
