I’m always so honored to feature smart and strong people on this podcast. Tiffani brings the knowledge and know-how in this chat! We started out talking about her work and it turned into a much bigger talk about to best impact the world (and why people of her age group are well suited to do it!).
She is an immigration attorney, the founder and Executive Director of Willow Tree Roots, an international NGO whose mission is to empower women in developing nations to achieve socioeconomic independence through entrepreneurship. In this month’s Millennial Spotlight episode, Tiffani goes deep into how to impact the world.
In this Millennial Spotlight, Tiffani shares how…
- You can make an impact on any level
- Travel helps expand your viewpoint and experiences
- Millennials have a strong desire to connect
- To be global and engaged in our diverse world
- To connect across cultures, beyond social media
What Drives Tiffani to Make an Impact:
- TED Talk: A feminine response to Iceland’s financial crash
- 20 Years After Rwandan Genocide, A Look Back At How Women Rebuilt Their Country
- United Nations Millennium Development Goals
- UN Women
More About Tiffani
Tiffani Sharp is the Founder and Executive Director of Willow Tree Roots. She is an attorney specializing in international law and has spent over 15 years advocating for the legal rights of the underrepresented and has spent most of her time assisting women from vulnerable populations.
She has traveled the world working with women to improve their socioeconomic status. This prompted Tiffani to start Willow Tree Roots, which currently has empowerment projects in Kenya, Peru, and Nepal.
Willow Tree Roots’ next Sacramento project will help young women from underrepresented groups between the ages of 18-25 turn their business ideas into a reality by providing them with the tools and mentors needed to help them become entrepreneurs.
Should we highlight someone you know?
Let us know! Contact me here and tell us why they’re deserving of a spotlight. We look for people who fit into the Millennial age group who are looking to change the world through their work. All the better if their work impacts a local or global group already.
If you’re in doubt, just ask. Thanks for all your feedback!
