She is Here: Journey of Barbara Arredondo  
Barbara Arredondo is a noted cultural curator and journalist in peacebuilding. Her work has taken her to dozens of countries and has resulted in profiles of a number of her generation’s most promising peace-builders.

Though young in age, she managed to gather 6,000 peacemakers in her hometown of Monterrey, Mexico for a weekend of intensive conferences and workshops with notables ranging from the Dalai Lama to Iraqi-born women’s activist Zainab Salbi.

Barbara worked as content director for the Second & Third Worldwide Meeting on Human Values (EMV2011.org) and has advised diverse projects and events such as the Lincoln Center Institute’s Imagination Summit and the Newark Peace and Education Summit.

In her own words, she says "I have dedicated my life’s work to inspire others to find their own potential. I have dedicated my life’s work to restore peace in my city and my country. My life’s work is only 5 years old. It is innocent, playful, unfiltered, determined, and honest, which naturally reminds me of my childhood."

Come join us this upcoming Saturday and learn how such an incredible woman came to her calling so early in life; learn how she works to promote and uplift the standing of women in this world, learn how she promotes the importance of peace both within and without, learn about her upcoming project series called "I am Here" and perhaps most notable, learn the secret to what keeps her moving forward regardless of any obstacles that may come her way.
