What Yuen-Lin and Eric bring to the team is hard to describe. As we get ready for i-ACT Expedition #9, they’ve been working late in to the morning, day after day, to send the Expedition team as prepared as possible. They do this in addition to their already more than full-time jobs, and they do this for absolutely no personal gain, besides what they gain internally, which I know is huge.
What they are doing is so ambitious, and they are doing it in an extremely compact time frame. Their technology will allow students that live in a place as remote as any place can be, refugee camps on the Chad-Darfur border, connect with students in American cities, creating mutually enriching relationships–for the Darfur Dream Team Sister Schools Program.
Katie-Jay, James, and I will take this equipment with us, departing from Los Angeles and New York this Saturday, December 4th, and we expect to make it to a refugee camp by December 9th, if everything goes well.
I am lucky and blessed to have such an amazing team around me.
