Throughout his presidency he advocated for reform and inclusion and was a strong supporter of China’s bid as host city for the 2008 Olympic Games.

    Have you ever thought about creating an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my audience would enjoy your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.

      HI Sophia,

      THanks for the kind invite – I regret I am rather tied up with studies and work and the blog has taken a back seat at the moment and will have to do so for next year as well.

      I mainly use scoop-it while scanning the web each morning to send some stuff that I am interested in to the blog and Pinterest.

      Please feel free to use any of it.

      Maybe when I finish my PhD I will want to engage the world again.
