When you are passionate about something, there's no stopping you. Susan Gibson started volunteering in her hometown of Toronto, Canada as a teenager. And her book, "How To Be An Amazing Volunteer Overseas," is a practical and useful tool to help motivate aspiring volunteers to contribute in the most meaningful ways.
Susan has been involved in the non-profit world for more than 35 years and has worked and volunteered in 70 countries. She is also a philanthropist actively engaged in the areas of refugees, human rights and education for girls.
Based in London for the past 20 years, today Susan lives in Washington, DC, enjoying promoting her book to young people who are so inspired to have meaningful volunteer experiences locally and overseas.
