I’ve always had a semi-secret dream.
It's “secret” because I don't want to tell too many people about it. In all honesty, I am just so far from even beginning to tackle this issue, that I'd rather not say it for fear of my words losing meaning.
It’s “semi” because I also tell a lot of people about it. I have yet to find a feasible solution, but the thing is, I believe so much in this mission that I don't care who solves it. I'd rather it be done by anyone at all than not be done at all by me.
Are you ready for it?
My semi-secret dream is to change education in poor communities across the world.
Needless to say, I am passionate about education and the promises it aims to keep. And fresh out of university, I thought I’d take a crack at the North American education system.
One of the promises our current education system hopes to keep but sadly fails to hold is preparing youth for their careers.
Luckily, I fell across SparkPath.
I got the chance to join a team working really hard to tackle this issue and forever changing the future of education with the Challenge mindset.
Seems like the perfect job for me, right? I thought so too, but for some reason in the back of my mind, fear started to settle in, as it does, and without even realizing it, I started thinking to myself: “Is anyone as excited about the Challenge Mindset as we are?”
It’s been about a month and man oh man, I couldn’t be more wrong. Over these last couple of weeks, I’ve been surrounded by educators, school counsellors, and career coaches working extra hard to better prepare their communities, all of them relieved they’ve found the product that is helping them do just that.
SparkPath has no marketing, or barely - it’s all word of mouth, or educators searching for a product like ours… any company could only dream of having such an amazing community.
Anyway…sorry to say, the future of education isn't changing because of the Challenge Cards, or even SparkPath. It’s changing because of the passionate and dedicated souls like yourselves challenging the norms and forging ahead.
I can't believe I get to be a part of it.
Sally, a new Success Manager at SparkPath.
