I’ve managed various youth programs, run a homeless shelter for families in the housing crisis, and developed programs for young people struggling with addiction. Now, I work in global health, helping under-resourced doctors get access to education, training, and equipment. I get to travel the world and support people who are saving lives on the front lines of other countries, and it was undoubtedly Rainbow that got me here. Rainbow taught me the skills to manage programs, make strong relationships, and perhaps most importantly, live a life of service.

I help companies engage their people in any organizational changes they are going through. Those changes could be a new company structure, product strategy, software/technology, or even a cultural shift. The thing is, a company could have the best strategy in the world, but if their people don’t understand or believe in that strategy, it will never succeed. I learned about the power of people through Rainbow. Rainbow not only gave me lifelong sisters, but also gave me the confidence and skills to communicate with clients, lead complex projects, and always bring my authentic self to work.

It’s back-to-school time and we all have clothing that we loved last year that is either too small, too worn, or just out of fashion now, but we still love the piece. I am going to show you how easy it is to create a brand new tote bag from your worn-out jeans.
- The first thing you need to do is mark where you are going to cut. For the body of the bag, you want to draw a line as close to the crotch seam as you can. You can always go lower if you want to use the legs as a double pouch too. Next, you will need to measure 2 handles on one of the legs about 2 ½ inches wide and 20” long. If your leg isn’t wide enough, no worries, there is a backside to the leg and you still get 2 out of one leg.
- Now you’ll want to cut along those lines so that you have the body of the bag and 2 strap pieces.
- Next, you will turn the body of the bag inside out and stitch about a ½” from the edges of the bottom to close your bag. While you’re at it stitch the zipper closed. Then turn the straps right sides together and stitch along the edge to create a tube. Carefully turn your tubes inside out so the right side is showing and your seam is hidden.
- Then stitch your straps where you would like on the waistband of your bag. I chose to use the front belt loops as an attachment point, but you can put them wherever is most comfortable for you.
And there you have it, a zippy little tote bag you can use anytime!
Rainbow has given me immense amounts of confidence. Whether it be in everyday life, giving a speech, or just interacting with people. I am constantly doing dive briefings or teaching new SCUBA divers where I use my public speaking skills that I learned in Rainbow on the daily basis. Additionally, Rainbow has really taught me interpersonal skills and how to work with someone who is completely different, or who has a different view point than me. All of the things that I have learned from Rainbow really have driven me to chase whatever dream that I have, no matter what it may be.
