Encouraging

I really enjoyed listen to her testimony and how to help the environment. I was sad to learn she passed in 2011,because I really would have loved to meet her.

Loved it!

Enjoyed hearing Dr. Wangari Maathai tell her story on the world stage and finally get recognized for her efforts after having witnessed her work in Kenya through the years. Her take aways at the end: determination, persistence, and patience describe her experience perfectly.
