Super Daughter

This girl is trying to win a trip to the Amazon.
Please, please, please cast a vote for her.

She is the 4th photo with the BLUE CAPE.

The contest is through Runa Tea.
Runa is a business created by two young guys with a vision to help indigenous farmers in Equador with their livelihoods.  They saw communities forced to make impossible choices between their values and providing for their families.  They had a vision for a Fair Trade business to help the Kichwa people, making a tea using guayusa found there.

Megan is about to begin her junior year in college.  She is working toward a business/marketing degree.  This summer she had an internship at an advertising agency where she has been hired part time.  When she began college, she had the goal of becoming a successful business woman, and I think she defined success as making a lot of money.  In the last two years she has had experiences where she has grown to realize that money does not equal success, and it is much more important to be honest, hardworking, and make a difference in the lives of others.  I am so proud of the woman she is becoming.  

If she wins this trip she will see firsthand the Kichwa community.  She will stay with a family in their home, plant and harvest trees, and learn about a global business and how they help others through their company.

So please vote if you are so inclined.
Go Megan!
