Hmm... we couldn't find that place in our database.
Are you sure it's correct?
Michael Austin Johnson
Hello my name is Michael Johnson, and I recently graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BA in Political Science. I was raised, and have worked on our family farm for most of my life. It has instilled in me a strong work ethic, and humility in working the land. My passion is for social justice in helping, and caring about other people around the world for making a difference.
I have extensive experience in various agricultural, and micro-finance projects in traveling internationally with an non-governmental organization (ACDI-VOCA) for over eleven years. Viewing various projects in Colombia, Jamaica, Serbia, Senegal, Tanzania, Cape Verde, Kenya, and Egypt. From projects in horticulture to funding indigenous women in rural communities for starting a business. I have experience from my interactions with senior management staff of the organization, project mangers, project staff, shareholders, and lastly the various diverse populations for learning about these projects first hand. Also volunteering in my local community. My education has strongly enhanced these experiences, and knowledge of the various complex issues that are happening both locally and globally. In giving me the ability to think critically for working independently, and with others in a common cause for wanting to make a difference.
These humbling, and life changing experiences has fueled my passion for wanting to make difference in the world. Caring, and wanting to help others is what is important to me. My background, education, and real life experiences have all been important for shaping me in being who I am today.
