Professionally A Creative Director in TV & Online Media. I believe in one humanity and one world. Spiritually we all belong to one faith & one life to live in peace and care for all living beings on this planet respecting everyone in all possible manners. Having travelled most of the places in the world and met people from all places helped me realised that we human are basically the same biologically but our minds work different because it all depends on where & how we lived our early life and what we experienced makes all the difference.

I was looking for Creative Space in Online community to share and work internationally with all kinds of people with different ideas and backgrounds coming with all over the world. This online space might work for me to connect and interact with the world which has similar interest and deals in creative ideas.
In my above answer I have shared my views on this question but to take it further I can say that with the invention of Internet connecting people from all around the world really create a huge scope in many areas for people to connect & interact globally not for just dating or making friends but also exchanging ideas and creative aspects to build a virtual studio where we all can share & discuss our ideas and work in unlimited time & space we have.
Yes, why not if your organisation thinks I can contribute my work & time which is approved by your managing team. But first I need to know what are the areas which can be good for me and most important if I am good at it to do my bit sincerely. Please share more to make me understand what you mean by 'helping with the course organization.'

My name is Maria Martinez, I am part of Occupy Toronto, I am currently a Film Student but I will be changing my certificate to Project Management and Fundraising, all thanks to Occupy Toronto's motivation to create social change in my city and my country.
I am part of the team building the Free School in Toronto and I would like to learn more skills to be able to contribute more to the school and make sure that it's kept running smoothly.
Location: Toronto, OntarioStandard Set Answer:
My work in the last 5 months with Occupy Toronto has made me interested and opened my eyes to the amount of social change and activism needed in Toronto. This is a very apathetic city, where laws gets passed that affect the unseen citizens, such as the poor, the homeless and the student class.
I hope I will be able to combine some of my skills with skills learned to create a way to reach to the audience that doesn't feel like they are being affected by anything our municipal, provincial, or federeal government does just becasue it's not on the news or because they don't feel it in their homes. A lot of people think that the time to take action is when they are being harrased at their front door, but they need to know that when their neighbour or their local business owner is being harrased everyone should take action because they could be next.
I would be more than happy to help with course organization.
