Just checked-in for the weekend at CGIU (Clinton Global Initiative University) in Washington, DC!!
I am so excited. This will be an amazing opportunity for One Bead and for me as a growing entrepreneur to hear some incredible people speak and learn a lot about what it is going to take to keep One Bead alive and thriving. 

What is CGIU?

In 2007, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University "to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world. Each year CGI U hosts a meeting where students, national youth organizations, topic experts, and celebrities discuss solutions to pressing global issues"

Tonight I will be attending:

Opening Plenary Session on the Power of Public Service
Remarks: Steven Knapp, President,  The George Washington University
Moderator: Bill Clinton, Founding Chariman, Clinton Global Initiative, 42nd President of the United States
Madeleine K. Albright, Chair, Albright Stonebridge Group
Rye Barcott, Founder, Carolina for Kibera
Usher Raymond IV, Chairman and Founder, Usher's New Look Foundation
Sadiqa Basiri Saleem, Executive Director, Oruj Learning Center

So excited. And on top of all this, my Aunt (you all know her pictures from the Oscars, Superbowl, and San Francisco with One Bead) Kristi is working at the event!
