Hi! My name is Gianna and here are a few things about me:
1.) I love coffee.
2.) I have a theory that the world can be changed through conversation.
3.) I have decided to test that theory out.
So, here's the plan:
I wrote one hundred letters to one hundred different people who have positively impacted this world. In each letter, I am simply asking for them to chat with me over coffee about the change they have made. On this blog, I plan to share each of their stories.
I know what you are probably thinking....Why do this?
The answer is hope.
I want the stories of these difference makers to instill hope in my generation. I want teenage readers to understand that everyone starts somewhere and that everyone can leave a positive mark on this world.
My English teachers have always stressed the relationship between cause and effect. I am ready to see that grammar lesson come alive.
"The cause" is simple. It is just a sixteen year old girl who wants to learn about changing the world. As for "the effect," I hope it begins to play out in a big way and at least one teenager starts imagining a brighter future for themselves.
So, let's see how much hope a few conversations over coffee can create.
