My Favorite Quote

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows,…

I had a Dream about Marketing.

I had a dream last night and in it, there was a man who spoke to me about Marketing and how it affects consumer behavior and how technology somehow gives us self-importance that we're losing touch with our humanity and, that was when I began to question all sorts of things and one of them is, how does marketing and our consumption (for some, buying…

Today is one to celebrate!

Today is Human Rights Day...
and being in The Dream Project Club at Franklin High School,
i just want to say we have a RIGHT to make a difference and so does everyone else.

Don't be afraid to nurture your vision
strive to be of good service locally and globally
Become a "Solutioner"
and take a risk in using your infinite creative consciousness
Focus on what you want,
and if you work hard enough you'll recieve exactly what you're asking for.

Dear Kelly,

Greetings from Texas! How are things going? I'm sure you are continuing to do amazing and life changing work with the Dream Project! I love checking out the website and keeping up with the blog. All the students' blog posts give me such a happy feeling!

My Conversation with Auston

Auston Chavez is a 9th grader at Franklin High School.  Auston was one of the lucky students to be in Mrs Conde's Health Class, in which the Dream Project is an integrated part.


At the recent Success Fair at Franklin, I got to meet Auston and several hundred other Dream Project students that literally took my breath away.


Auston patiently waited until I spoke to all the other students.  He couldn't wait to tell me about the effect the Dream Project had on…

Are you asking yourself about value?

(Reposted from

Value and money. Ain’t it all about perspective.

I’ll give two examples about understanding value and money:

1) My Vietnamese scarf and 2) A quote from Nicholas Kristof, “Humanitarians have tended to guilt-trip people and governments into generosity by peddling emaciated children with flies on their eyes.”

That being said,

1) My…

Universal Education-by Carlos Rojo

One of the things I love most about doing the Dream Project is when students learn about the fact that there are so many young people their age that are denied an education either because they are poor or are female. Learning that education is a privilege gives the students an undeniable appreciation for school.

Check out this poem by Carlos Rojo from Franklin High School (Mrs. Conde's class):
