M Essa

Messa is starting an internship with Philanthropiece this fall. They are finishing up their degree in the Environmental Studies program through the University of Colorado, Boulder. They have spent the last two years of their degree focusing permaculture, specifically sustainable food systems. Messa’s background lies in wilderness education and martial arts. They currently compete for the CU Boulder Tae Kwon Do team, and teach at Jade Martial Arts. Their hobbies include making music, climbing, and building community. Messa is looking forward to learning and growing with Philanthropiece and the Youth Global Leadership Program.

At Philanthropiece, we are fortunate to have a team of inspired and inspiring individuals who are willing to go to the end of the earth and back – or at least to the end of a long dirt road in the back of a bumpy bus – to share in the process of creating a better life in our partner communities.
