Team Komera: Heather Newell Video

About a year ago, an awesome Peace Corps friend of mine visited my home in Rwanda to shoot a video about my running with my students. Michael, the videographer, had filmed several other volunteers in their personal quests to find strength in running. The video series is a part of his initiative to promote running and inner-strength among volunteers. This was called TEAM KOMERA (‘Komera’ can be translated as be strong).

He compiled everything so perfectly and I’m honored to have a friend with such talents. I’ll be keeping this one forever!

Heather Newell Oglesby

Hi! I'm Heather. I am a writer and counselor in-training. I share stories so we can keep the magic of being human alive. I spend a great deal of time going on long walks with my wife, rollerblading, learning, and traveling to find new adventures. By day, I work as an Education and Employment Specialist for Jefferson Center for Mental Health, working with adolescents who have experienced their first episode of psychosis. A Colorado native, I love dark-roasted coffee, sunshine, and succulents. Enthusiasm, passion, and possibility: that's me at my best.
