Welcome to my homepage on Global Voices Online. I love reading, writing, and hearing people's stories, especially those whose lives are different than my own.

Connect with me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/MayaNorton or Facebook: www.facebook.com/TheNewJew. My original blog can be seen here: http://TheNewJew.wordpress.com. It was the first Jewish philanthropy blog on the internet and a true act of love.
