I was both humbled and blessed to document Gail Dever’s Homecoming and Book Signing. She is a former classmate of mine at Sweetwater High School and has an amazing inspirational and motivational story to tell. Her story can be read in her recently released book: “Gail Devers – My Life In Story: Stronger.” I encourage everyone to go out and get it, it is great reading! In 1990, she was diagnosed with Graves’ disease, and under-went radioactive iodine treatment, followed by thyroid hormone replacement therapy. She later returned to the track and at the 1991 World Championships, she won a silver medal in the 100 meter hurdles. She shared her life’s trials and triumphs with the current student body at Sweetwater High School and they left with hearing a message to never give up and to pursue your dreams! Thanks Gail, you are an absolutely amazing role model and friend. You can follow Gail on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ImGailDevers or Twitter @ImaGailDevers.

My daughter Caroline is a Campus Representative for Serengetee. We traveled up to San Francisco for a Team Serengetee – Bay Area Representatives photoshoot at the beautiful Palace of /fine Arts. I could not be more proud of her and her association with such a great cause. As of today, they have donated $102,458 to many different causes around the world and purchased $54,712 of unique fabric from the participating 32 countries.
The Serengetee Story
The idea for Serengetee came while three college friends were traveling the world on Semester at Sea, a floating campus study abroad program. They toured markets in over 15 countries picking out authentic fabrics and meeting they we set out to create a new kind of clothing brand with a simple mission: to connect people to the globe through fabric while giving back to the communities that inspire their products. They launched Serengetee out of our dorm room in the spring of 2012 using every last penny in their pockets. Since their launch, Serengetee has become one of the fastest growing clothing brands in the world. Thanks to a strong fan base and a dedicated mission, they have the privilege of helping change lives all over the world, one Serengetee at a time.
“Wear the World. Change the World.”
