I am very excited to be part of "Bridging the Gap" campaign! The Bridging the Gap campaign took 100mid lifers and 100 millennials and teamed them together. I have always been friends with people of different ages, genders, races and religions. What moved me to be part of this groundbreaking event is that It never mattered to me the label of a person...all that mattered was the person had a good heart and we had a few things in common. Some of my best friends are in their 80's and others are in their 20's. I have never let an age gap dictate my friendship and have always believed we are stronger together. So when I was asked to find a millennial to interview... I immediately knew who to contact. This leads me to introduce you to one of my best friends, Anne Therese Bengtsson who is 26 years old! She is truly a beacon of light and one must be careful not to get blinded by her wattage. I met Anne Therese with some friends one night for an event she was hosting and we quickly became inseparable. We just feel so connected. She has taught me so much and I have (hopefully) taught and mentored her. At 26, Anne Therese is a very insightful and brilliant young lady. One of the subjects I was interested in interviewing her on was how to stay healthy on a plant based diet. Listen to our podcast here http://heychange.net/episodes/923/.
We may come from different walks of life but we share a common goal… to use our voice and platform to help this planet become a thriving, just and sustainable world for all. Our experiences differ in the sense that we now live in the era of social media. She is teaching me a lot about technology and the importance of social media and I am helping her in her career choices. With the advent of social media we now have access to a lot information that I was not privy to when I was her age and she is gaining insights from my wisdom and experience.
Anne Therese is the founder of Role Models Management www.rolemodelmgmt.com, she has a podcast called "Hey Change" and she is a Vegan. Since I have always been fascinated with plant based food diet, but never knew where and how to began I thought it would be perfect to interview Anne Therese since she has been a Vegan for over three years. Hope you enjoy our podcast interview http://heychange.net/episodes/923/ and please subscribe! Namaste, Dawn
