Yo, heres a quick letter I drafted up, and I know its lacking, and was wondering if you guys can help me patch it up, make it more solid.
Hi, my name is Shawn Kisielius and I have a dream, and Im currently trying to chase it. I know what I want to do with my life, and I want to do it with all my energy. I just don't know where to start. I am a member of the green party, and believe strongly in raising
awareness for conservation and preservation.
I am currently an ecotourism student at Mount Royal College in Calgary. It's a 4 year program, but I don't want to spend 4 years, along with thousands of dollars, when I already have a goal. This is what I envision:
I want to build a tree top ecolodge retreat on the coast of BC. I have been in contact with a few organizations in the area, one being the Spirit Bear Youth coalition, who are lobbying to save that part of the rainforest, the only place in the world where the spirit bear (white
black bear) lives. It is also the last temperate rainforest in the world.
It is in danger, and I want to help save it through sustainable awareness. I have researched eco lodges, and sustainable practices. I want to raise awareness about the spirit bear and about the forest. I think saving forests is one of the greatest things someone can do. In
grade 6 I raised 250$ through raffle sales etc, to help save the amazon.
I just returned from Peru where I spent a good deal of time in the forest I helped to preserve. It only made me want to save more of it. I envision suspended platforms for guided canopy tours, and in the later stages, guided ocean kayak, and zipline tours. My motivation in this is not to make money, it is to Do No Harm, to lead by example, to enlighten and rejuvinate the soul, to explore life fully in its changing entirety, to chase dreams not fear them, to motivate, inspire, and help the human race evolve to a more aware consciousness. I have researched solar, wind, and water power, as well as low energy hot water systems (quantum heaters). I want to donate my services to small communities, using
surplus revenue from the retreat, and help with its goals and projects. I want to help restore native american culture in traditional or modern terms. I know the forestry minister of Bc announced an initiative in my
exact desired location to help conserve it, searching for ecologicalmeans of gathering revenue. That way is Ecotourism. As much as i want to just go there and start building, I understand the importance of doing it right. I need help. I need a voice. I have been spreading the word, haverecruited many supporters, i have small investors looking to invest in it. I think there is a niche here, and I want to help fulfill it. I have been building major treehouses for years on my own. My newest
one, which wasn_t torn down by the city is in montreal, and is fully suspended 35 feet from the ground by 3 chains and three trees, and its built to code. I have 2 ziplines 100 feet long, and am already stringing up cargo nets. It is unique. This is who I am, and what I want to do.I don't know if you need to hear all this, but I just don't know who I should be talking to.
If you can help me with my dream, I thank you.
