Episode 5: Beauty from bullets: Lenya Heitzig founder of ReLoad Love
I like to travel. In the past two years, I've been to China, South Korea, Thailand Indonesia and Kenya. But I'll admit, when I go to these places, I enjoy a bit of comfort. I don't have to stay in a 4 or 5-Star hotel, but I'm not chomping at the bit to stay in some flea ridden place that may (or may not) change the sheets on the bed -- if they have sheets at all.
But our guest for Podcast No.5 has a much different perspective. And that's one of many reasons I've grown to admire her. And I believe you will, too. Lenya Heitzig, in her words has pushed herself to become a "G.I. Jane" --traipsing through the jungles with machette in hand (well I'm not sure about the machette part). But all of this was for a purpose, a purpose to help people.
Pushing herself may be a bit of an understatement. Lenya calls herself a "blonde Malibu Barbie." You might be asking yourself if a Malibu Barbie can make a difference on this planet? I think you'll be saying, "Wow, yes they can!" when you finish hearing her story, a story that involves kids, terrorists, playgrounds, spent bullet cases, and an acronym she uses: C.A.N.
