We are all on a journey to extraordinary. Where is your journey taking you? This post is sponsored by Holiday Inn, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Social entrepreneur Majora Carter is a woman on a mission to end poverty in the US. Watch her inspiring story:
“I know what it feels like to feel like you don’t matter. All I really want to do is help people understand that they do.” – Majora Carter
Meet Majora Carter
Majora Carter grew up during the ‘decade of fire’ in New York’s South Bronx area. She was determined to make a change and escape the poverty and crime of her childhood, and she knew that education was the key. Her first step in making something of herself was to move away from her home town. She never guessed when she began her journey that her education and drive to leave the poverty of her childhood would be the same things that drove her back home years later.
Now, she’s living back in the South Bronx and spending her time working with locals (at home and other communities) to create open spaces and leisure areas in low income areas – it’s an awesome, inspiring, and uplifting initiative!
Majora travels the world helping communities and individuals gain access to the jobs and opportunities they need to make something of themselves, too. Because she spends so much time on the road, having a “home away from home” when booking a hotel is important to her, and she has found that Holiday Inn is always the right choice.
“On the journey to the extraordinary there is always a Holiday Inn hotel”
What makes Holiday Inn feel like a home away from home for Majora? In my travels, I have had the opportunity to stay in many Holiday Inn hotels, and I can attest that there’s a different feel – from their clean and tasteful rooms to their uber-comfortable beds to their friendly staff who are always available and willing to help. It also helps that there are Holiday Inns throughout the country, making it easy to find one wherever it is you’re traveling.
I love that Holiday Inn looked inside the doors of their hotels to discover exactly that makes them so special – the people who stay with them. Everyone is on a journey somewhere – where is your journey taking you?
“We’re all on a journey to somewhere. And we’re all headed in the same direction: forward. The guests who come through our doors every day are like all of us; they have dreams, promises, plans. Here, we celebrate these guests, their stories, and everyone who embarks on the journey to extraordinary.” – Holiday Inn
