Becky Morales

What inspired you to start your business?
My family is my inspiration- my husband is from Mexico City, we have 2 daughters (biological) and a son adopted from China and another from Ethiopia. We love to travel and teach our children about differing perspectives and world cultures. As a teacher and parent, these are the activities I use with my children and students.

What have been your favourite experiences whilst doing the work you do?
I love to spend time with my kids doing messy art projects, teaching them about our environment, working in the garden, cooking with them, teaching them about maps and geography, and going to different cultural celebrations. Every time I am doing the research for an article and then doing the activity with my kids- we have so much fun! (This doesn't feel like work:).

What advice would you give to someone starting up in your industry?
 I think people need to find something they love, and brainstorm how they can turn that into a career. I am passionate about global education, and running a web site where I get to continue learning and teaching is ideal for me. I think if people are passionate about what they do they are more willing to put in the time and energy to make it successful.

What are your long term goals?
I am almost finished with a book for schools on how to incorporate global lessons into their elementary classes. I plan to continue speaking, teaching, and developing lessons for school to teach global and cultural awareness.

IsossyChildren celebrates diversity through global clothing for children. Why do you think diversity matters for every generation?
When we raise kids to recognize differing perspectives, and to be culturally aware, they will grow up to be compassionate and respectful citizens.

What words of wisdom do you think every child should grow up knowing?
Be the change you want to see in the world. This quote from Gandhi is one of my favorites because it empowers kids: even though you are "only" a child, your actions CAN change the world.
