Twelve participants came together on March 1, 2013, to discuss how to effectively balance work and life in the context of doing international work. The lunchtime seminar was led by Ms. Bistra Zheleva, Vice President of International Programs, Children’s Heartlink, and held at the Hennepin County Library in St. Louis Park.  Bistra initiated a lively hour-long discussion by asking why we do international work. Responses generally included an opportunity to apply skills and knowledge to global challenges in hopes of making a difference; and a desire to gain global perspective that comes from knowing people from other countries and learning about their culture, politics, language, history, and food.

I am this year’s (volunteer) President of what we hope will be a stellar year of growth, opportunity and endless professional networking for MINN members. Just a little about myself…I am a recent MPA grad from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs with a focus in global health, human resources, food, sustainability and agriculture.
