Amanda Lindhout

Founder, The Global Enrichment Foundation – Advancing Somali women’s leadership, building stronger communities and promoting peace.

I’m actually quite surprised that I haven’t noticed Amanda Lindhout prior to yesterday, as I’m a complete news junkie very interested in geo-affairs.

Amanda was interviewed by Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN’s AC360 last night, standing in the largest refugee camp in the world, Dadaab Refugee camp in Northern Kenya.

On August 4th, Amanda participated as a leader in delivering, by convoy, food to feed 14000 Somali refugees. Amanda has history with Somalia, but I’ll ask you to go find that on your own.

Amanda, if you read this, welcome to a broader community. Your courage and leadership are inspiring.

On Twitter, you’ll find great community in the hashtag #UsGuys, #PRSCamp and #LeadershipChat, amongst others.

Stay safe out there!
