Hello! Coffee! Running! Two of my favorite things! For everyone who knows me, this is a dream come true! I got involved in the coffee industry as a roaster 6 years ago. I never imagined my curiosity in roasting would lead me to my true passion and a meaningful career. Specifically, I am driven to support the empowerment of women in coffee producing countries. It is a cause near and dear to my heart. Women worldwide are invaluable and vital in coffee production, as they make up the majority of workers. Yet, far too many are not provided with the requisite financial and educational tools to successfully enter the industry (and furthermore thrive). Most women in these countries struggle with abuse, poverty, neglect, and gender inequality which prevents them from maintaining a sustainable lifestyle. Later this month, I will be traveling to Seattle to attend the Global Specialty Coffee Expo. While there, I will be running in the Java Jog. With the support of friends and family, I hope I can achieve my goal in the remaining weeks I have in order to support a cause I am truly passionate about. Thank you for taking the time to read my fundraising page! Michelle
