Finding Courage to Quit Your Job and Seek Meaningful Work
Presented by Think Act Change NYC at CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing)
Nov 2, 2013

For many of us the thought of leaving the corporate world to do something meaningful can be daunting. CRS & Think Act Change NYC invite you to hear guest Viktoria Harrison share her story of leaving the commercial fashion world to volunteer for charity: water.

Harrison attended the School of Visual Arts and began her career at SuperFad, a NYC design house. Feeling burnt out by her job as a designer, "I started wanting something more. I still believed that design was inherently good...I wanted to apply it to help solve big problems." Bravely, she quit her day job and embraced the unknown, trusting that her path would become clear.

Viktoria's humble beginnings with charity: water started with handing out flyers in Union Square. Since then, she has been able to combine her passion with design and become the Director of Brand Management at charity: water.

charity: water is New York based non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. It was founded by Scott Harrison, a former nightclub promoter who uprooted his life to become a photojournalist for Mercy Corp in Africa. When he returned from his trip, he started charity: water — an organization which focuses on providing clean and safe water in developing countries around the world. charity: water is the future of social enterprises. 100% of donations directly fund projects to provide clean water to people in need.
