May I introduce myself?
I am Sandra Ball. Born in the United States. I was raised during the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War. I learned at an early age that “You can make a difference.”
‘You can make a difference’
“You can make a difference” is a call to action and an expression of hope. You don’t have to just sit and wait. Change is possible, if you really want it.
I moved to the Netherlands in the ‘80s where I worked in the peace movement, then in neighborhood centers and elementary schools and lastly at Milieudefensie, an environmental group. I have extensive experience as director, manager, coach, advisor, trainer and facilitator of change.
I have always tried to make change happen, not only in my own life, but in the lives of others. The power and influence that I discovered in myself is the capacity to make others stronger. With m-powering, I want to continue this.
