I have two major news items to report. First and foremost, I went to Bangkok lat weekend to defend my thesis. My defense was successful and I will graduate in May with a Master of Arts in International Relations. The second bit of great news is that I flew back to Bangkok again and made a presentation on Wednesday night titled “Starting a Grassroots Non-Profit Organization.” The presentation was at Webster and they paid me, paid for my flights, 2 nights in a hotel and gave me spending money. The presentation went extremely well and I did some great networking. It was really good publicity for HELP! and we have a few different organizations coming to do site visits and some volunteering in the next 2 months.
