Compassion to Passion!

Deborah Plotkin speaking at  TEDx San Diego in February 2014

Deb Plotkin: Born and raised in New York City, with the tragic loss of her father early in life, Deborah learned to be strong at an early age, turning hardship into resilience and opportunity. Through her work, she established her path and passion for giving a voice to those in need and a way to fulfill their dreams. Deborah initially became an advocate to give that voice to children with autism. After she and her husband spent years facing challenges trekking mountains in the US, the Himalayas in Nepal, Ecuador and Tanzania, Deborah’s drive and determination to help others only grew. The lessons on the way to the summit were adding up. After facing unexpected storms and avalanches, yet conquering the peaks, it was time to give back. Deborah was instrumental in the fundraising efforts and building of three schools in the Himalayas. Her determination, purpose and meaning in life grew exponentially. Learning about atrocities in northern Uganda, Deborah developed a student sponsorship program for orphans in the region.
