Summer solstice, the official start of summer, is here! It’s the perfect day to shine a light on what students at LASA High School did to bring clean and safe drinking water to students and families in Burundi, Africa.
Gilbert was featured on Sarah Brokaw's recent Podcast--Shared Secrets
In 1993, when Gilbert was a junior in high school, he was severely burned in a massacre in the Tutsi-Hutu war of Burundi, witnessing mass murder and barely escaping with his life. He spent three months in the hospital recovering, and was told he'd never walk again. In this episode, Gilbert joins Sarah to describe the path he took from the hopelessness to resilience and triumph. He explains how he aims to create meaning from his experience by helping others in a variety of ways, including his work as a running coach and through the Gazelle Foundation. And he shares the #1 tool he's found for discovering your strength in the wake of adversity. Listen to the episode here.
