Unexpected Answer to a Lifelong Dream: Brittany’s Story

My name is Brittany Ferris. I'm 31 years old, a cat mom, and happily married to my husband Devon. When I was a child. I knew exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up: I wanted to be a mom and I wanted to be a missionary to Africa. Unfortunately, as life often goes, neither of those dreams ever came to fruition. Though I never went to Africa, it always held a special place in my heart. After I got married, my husband and I tried to start a biological family for 8 years. About 2 [...]

Natasha: Lifelong Entrepreneur

When I was a little girl, I loved creating beaded jewelry. I would craft for hours with my little bead kit. Any time I got allowance money, I invested it in more beads. My parents always taught me that if you wanted something, you had to work for it. Although they provided a comfortable life for me, I was not just given everything I wanted. So I would take my little creations and lay them out on a card table in front of my mom’s apartment building with a caboodle full of coins I dug out of the [...]

Sierra’s Sseko Story

Long, long ago, way back when the Fellows Program wasn't supposed to be a real thing, I found it, and made it my thing. I was in Jim Thorpe, PA with my Husband for my birthday weekend getting ready to hike our favorite place, Glen Onoko falls, and saw that there was a small festival going on around the train tracks. I immediately plastered myself to the window shouting "Look, a Fair! It's Jim Thorpe's Birthday too! Let's stop!" This might be a major indicator as to why the first brave piece I was ever gifted was Whimsy, but [...]

Jessica: Reflecting on my first year as a Sseko Fellow

There are honestly so many things I love about Sseko but the one thing that keeps coming to my mind is the community. There is a special bond of friendships that happen when you become a Fellow and the relationships that happen with the amazing women in Uganda is so powerful. I love that we are all in this together. It’s not a race for someone to get there first, we are here to encourage one another and look at the bigger picture and dream together of an independent and bright future. […]

“I quit my job at Sseko Headquarters, then I joined them on my own terms.”

As far as we know, it’s not a common practice to publish interviews with employees who have quit working at your company. But we do things a little differently here at Sseko, and we are excited to share this story!  Adrienne Del Monte was a core member of team Sseko at our headquarters in Portland, Oregon for two years. She interviewed nearly a thousand women who were starting their journeys as Sseko Fellows and helped shape our community into the vibrant and welcoming place that it is. She recently quit  her job at Sseko and we’re sharing an interview with [...]
