"Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world"
I know what it is like to want more but feel like you never have the time or energy to make it happen. I spent over a decade researching health + wellness experts. Learning how to improve my health and optimize my daily habits. I spent years experimenting with every health + wellness trend and ancient method under the sun.
Until I finally broke through and discovered the heath I knew was possible. Building healthy habits and learning to manage my stress levels were so critical in my transformation.
I realized that we are all chasing our next level, but in reality, the most expensive real estate is our own mind and body. Yet most of us are not taught the small daily habits needed to optimize our health and wellbeing. I know I wasn't.
Even though I enjoyed my previous career in real estate development I didn't find the meaning I longed for. Which left me feeling trapped in a vicious hamster wheel. I instead found purpose in giving back.
Which lead me to found NourishX, to provide you the daily rituals to combat chronic stress and help you live a vibrant life. Focused to provide you with fun science-based tips to incorporate into your life so you can feel delicious too! All propelled by purpose!
Propelled by Purpose
From the core I believe together we can use education to improve our own lives and the lives of others. After reading “The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change” by Adam Braun the founder of Pencils of Promise (PoP). He was inspired at 25 years old and with just $25 started his mission to build just one school. Fast forward over10 years later PoP has built over 525 schools. Inspiring - right?!
Five years ago I was propelled into action after finishing the book and started to fundraise for one school. This experience transformed me! To date, I have fundraised to build 4 schools and counting.
After my first school was hooked on building more schools but I desired to find a way to transfer the feeling of building schools to the kids in nonprofits I supported in San Francisco.
As a kid, I struggled with reading being dyslexic. I was astounded when I found out that 85% of the kids I was helping locally were reading drastically below age level. This is why the Read to Build program I created was born in 2016. Now has grown to serve 300 local summer readers - incentivized with a fun summer reading program where I gave kids the power to unlock the fundraising dollars I earn for them to build schools. With your help supporting NourishX we will spread the impact of education.
Giving local inner-city kids the ability to give back to children around the world. I was moved by seeing the transformation in the kids who realized the power of their actions. The readers receive reading certificates and backpacks for completing their reading hours. As many of the kids don't have the resources for their own school supplies.
I have a vision that every kid in the world will be provided the tools for quality education and have their basic needs met. My drive for giving back is my fuel to serve and why 50% of profits are donated to my purpose partners.
