Some of you know Sahila as my co-administrator of the Miseducation Nation Facebook Page, and others of you may know her from her tweets (@Kiwigirl58) about living life decently, without greed, and with consideration for the least among us.
Sahila is smart. She doesn't suffer fools too well. She is a sinlge mom trying to make her world a little better for all of us.
I personally wish there were more like her. There aren't. She's one in a million.
About Sahila, in her own words:
Born in Europe and raised in the southern hemisphere, I've lived in five countries on three continents and in two island nations... I'm a communications, marketing and PR consultant, broadcast journalist, writer, editor, event manager, fund raiser, narration and voice-over artist... I'm also a personal growth facilitator, teacher, breath worker, shaman, healer, ordained non-denominational minister and celebrant, in private and public practice... Diversity, equality and equity, social justice and sustainable community issues are important to me and I'm active in social change groups... I'm the parent of four children, three of whom are grown up and living in other parts of the world... kinda interesting doing the parenting thing again, from the far side of 50! Not as much energy nor as fast on my feet, but maybe a little more relaxed, wiser and certainly more street smart... as I tell my youngster: "with three older siblings, there's not much point in you trying anything - I've seen it all!"
