My favorite sound bites from Catalyst West 2011 (Part 1)

Catalyst West isn't done yet, but already, I feel different. I forgot how life-changing a Catalyst conference can be. It's just one of those events that create an environment for people to feel hopeful, inspired, and empowered once again.

Just like last year, my pen had trouble keeping up with all the speakers, and most of the time, I was too focused on listening that I forgot to take down notes. But here are some of the funny, witty, and powerful sound bites I managed to write down [...]

ROCK and RUN on June 19!

Hi Friends! As some of you may or may not know, I’m part of a non-profit organization called REPUBLIKHA, and we are PASSIONATE about empowering the next generation through music. Or to break it down further, we work with artists, musicians, educators, parenting advocates, and people from the academe and the music industry to create high-quality educational children’s music that we can distribute for FREE (together with Parent and Teachers’ Manuals too!) to public schools and community day care centers...

In case you missed it, here’s the first half of my list of 10 Awesome Things About Catalyst West. And as for the rest, I’m just going to dive right in! 6) Seeing the power of social media.

Yesterday was the first day of my 3-day Catalyst West adventure. I first discovered Catalyst two years ago on the INJOY website when we were planning a youth leadership event in the Philippines. I wanted to research on what other programs were out there,...
