Rotary Speaker Lucy Gent Foma Discusses Her Book

Lucy Gent Foma, a Santa Fe author and Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar to Senegal in 2010-11, recently spoke at a meeting of the Rotary Club of Los Alamos, describing her book Funded! How I Leveraged My Passion to Live A Fulfilling Life and How You Can Too. Foma says her book is ‘geared toward individuals who are starting their careers and those who have a vision of setting out to do their own thing.’ Funded! includes ‘breakout boxes with anecdotes from past fellows’ experiences, stories from the field, and advice from mentors. Exercise sheets are sprinkled throughout the text for you to practice and note your ideas as you go. As a step-by-step guide taking you from the phase of dreaming about your project all the way to finding the right fellowship and preparing your application, Funded! makes the process manageable by breaking it into steps that anyone can follow. If you are looking for an inspiring career or want to activate a dormant passion in your work, Funded! will teach you the foundational skills to become the change agent you want to be. Copies are available through local booksellers and on Amazon.
