A glimpse into my daily adventures.
I will explore the ins and outs of this chaotic city, Jakarta, Indonesia, inundating myself into the life and culture of an American ex-pat in this Southeast Asian community. It will navigate the world of economics, politics and culture. Working with Grassroots Business Fund, will provide an intimate introduction to Jakarta and allow me to explore its thriving economy through the lens of impact investment. Studying under the tutelage of Professor Pek-Koon Heng, we will meet with Malaysian and Indonesian to learn first-hand about globalization, governance and security in this exciting time for this dynamic region.
This blog has been resurrected with my travels to Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, and other areas in the Southeast Asia region. Prior posts have been imported from my time serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in The Gambia. It all should have one overarching theme: the world is our community and we are global citizens who must experience it to make our contribution to it.
