I am Judith Green from Brampton, Ontario, Canada. I am an accountant by trade.
In 2006, I was assigned to work at my employer’s operation located in Edmonton, Alberta. During the seven and a half months assignment, I lived in a hotel and commuted back and forth about every two to three weeks.
Living at the hotel presented me with precious time alone where I engaged in some soul searching and reflection. I often asked myself if I had made the right decision to leave my family behind and go to Edmonton. The nagging question of what was my mission in life, my destiny, kept surfacing until I prayed about it. I asked God what I was put on this earth to do, what was my purpose, my destiny? The answer didn’t take long to be revealed to me.
The next weekend the picture became clearer to me. I was inundated by television shows and programs relating to the environment. It seemed that every channel was bombarding me with this topic. I took my cue from that.
I was challenged with becoming an author and writing about a topic with which I was not very familiar. I knew that this was my destiny and that I must have the tenacity and faith to see it through. Right there and then I started jotting down words that dealt with the environment. I drew the concepts that I envisioned and wanted to convey, the connection between self and the environment.
After my assignment in Edmonton had concluded, I became busy with my daily routine and put the project on the back burner. Very often my conscience would remind me to work on the project but it was not forthcoming. I kept procrastinating until some circumstances cornered me in and I knew that the time had come for me to get down to the task, which I did.
So three years after the revelation, I took the first steps in my journey to fulfill my destiny. In researching the issues affecting the deteriorating environment, I was intrigued by and became passionate about finding solutions to preserve the environment for future generations. I have targeted young people with my writing as I not only see them as the world’s future, but the future as theirs along with the shared responsibility of shaping their environment. The youth and children bring new visions and fresh insights to issues and are more adept to engendering international cooperation in finding global solutions. I believe that we must engage young people to build a culture which respects the environment and incorporates its preservation in their lifestyles.
I finally released my first book in a series called ENVIRO 1. I combined my work on the environment with my lifelong wish to provide aid to poor and disadvantaged children in the world. A percentage of the sales proceeds from all ENVIRO 1 products will fund projects for poor children.
