Eating Bugs On The Journey To Freedom

“We were forced out of our home into the direction that gunshots were directing us with.” The first 8 years of Thear’s life were spent in war and refugee camps.

Surviving the Cambodian Genocide

Every Struggle Becomes a Strength

14 million people were displaced and 1 million people died during the Partition of India. Neena Newberry shares the story of her family’s history, a time of insane violence because of a religious partition line; the separation of India and what is known today as Pakistan. That was just one of the many struggles her family has overcome before finding their way to freedom and peace. After her parents married and had children, Neena’s dad, who was highly educated, migrated (without his family) to England where he worked night shift at an ice cream factory. When the family was reunited, the suffering didn’t stop in England. Racial discrimination and ignorance affected their children in the form of bullying and physical violence. So, they picked up and moved to the US, where they had family connections and community. Such an inspirational story of courage and perseverance. Today, Neena is the Founder of Newberry Executive Solutions where she coaches executives (VPs and higher) for som...

The Journey From Poverty to Prosperity

Big Purpose, Big Title, Big Mission

As a girl born last into a traditional Chinese family in the 1960s -- when boys were valued over girls and birth order often decided a child’s future in the culture -- Cynthia learned about the concept of inequity. She was fortunate. Her family moved to America when she was a year old, so she had access to education from kindergarten through college. The births of many girls like Cynthia, however, were viewed as burdens eliminated through adoption. Other girls who remained with their families were brought up to be wives or caregivers for their parents, while their male counterparts received education and resources. Thoughts of these girls and other people who are devalued because of their gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, economic status or other personally defining characteristics, dismay and motivate Cynthia. She wants to change the world for them through her position and relationships. Today, she is the executive director of The Boone Family Foundation and uses a $5 m...
