Stand on your own (soyo)

  2. 2. I am taking an online course, “Leading Strategic Innovation in Organizations”, through Coursera. It is conducted by instructor David A. Owens of Vanderbilt University. I am required to submit my course project and I have used an image found on your website. The project I am working on is “Stand On Your Own”, in which I hope to encourage single parents to create eco-friendly product that they could sell at stalls offered to them by non-profit organizations. You can view how I have used your image in my course work at the following link: I will remove the image used if it is not acceptable to you. However, if the idea I have envisioned for “Stand On Your Own” resonates with you, I hope to hear from you soon on how you would like to adopt it in your own community. Thank you.
