Mina Guli is a woman on a mission. In an effort to raise awareness for the global water crisis, she's spent the past two years running distances no one can ignore (62 marathons in 62 days!) and igniting a worldwide movement for water conservation. This story puts you "in her shoes," revealing the inner workings of a mind on a mission to change the world.

Meet Selia, the chef behind the popular Cusco restaurant Seledonia's Mesa. Her perseverance in the kitchen has led her to become a restaurant owner and the breadwinner for her family, despite others telling her she couldn't do it. Her next dream: to provide opportunities for other single mothers to achieve their goals as working moms in Peru.

Video #2:  Pierre Thiam

Location: Senegal / Brooklyn

Partner: Pierre Thiam

Keywords: #foodtravel #Senegal #africanfood #bethechange

Chef Pierre Thiam is a citizen of two worlds—born in Senegal, it wasn't until the kitchens of Brooklyn, NY that he found his stride. This story reveals how a Senegalese chef shattered cultural stigmas around men in the kitchen while also managing to introduce an often overlooked African cuisine and culture to the world stage through the universal language of food.

Video #1:  ROSmarie ruf

Location: DR Congo (Central AFRICA)

Partner: Okapi Conservation Project

Keywords: #womenPower #CONGO #WILDLIFEconservation #okapi #bethechange

For the past three decades, Rosmarie Ruf has dedicated her life to protecting the endangered okapi endemic to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Given the country’s instability and share of challenges, some would say it is no place for a woman. But after the passing of her husband, Rosmarie stepped into the role of Director of the Okapi Conservation Project and has quietly become the Jane Goodall of okapi conservation. Although she says the okapi are the ones that saved her, Rosmarie just might be the unsung hero to save these ‘ghosts of the forest.’
