From the moment I stepped off the bus in Asunafo, I was touched. The children were so happy to see the “Obroni” (white people) that they ran and hugged us, grabbed our legs, and simply looked up and smiled.
Not a day has passed since that trip that I haven’t thought about the positive effect we had on the lives of so many children and families. Bringing power to three villages that had no source of electricity, aside from the occasional generator power in Asunafo, was simply life changing for me. We made a difference in the children’s ability to study and learn, especially with the assembling of a new library.
To see the teamwork of all of us on the trip was a clear indicator of what Viridian is, what our corporate leadership stands for, and what exactly it means to be Generation V. I can’t be more proud or happy to be a part of Viridian. When people ask what makes us different from the other energy suppliers, the answer is easy. We are making a difference, one continent at a time.
I’m looking forward to growing with Viridian both professionally and personally. I also look forward to going to Asia next year to touch the lives of many more people.
Thank you, Michael Fallquist; Thank you, Viridian.
My name is Joel Brizzi, and I am Generation V.
