This Project FUEL life lesson comes from Meredith Colaizzi of Girls on the Run

Deepak Ramola, the founder of Project FUEL, believes that everyone has a life lesson to pass on. The mission of his organization, in which FUEL stands for Forward the Understanding of Every Life Lesson, is to collect and share those life lessons from all over the world.

The newest batch of life lessons comes from Pittsburgh. We asked Kidsburgh readers to share a life lesson they experienced that affected or even changed their life. Ten of those life lessons were turned into videos by Project FUEL.

Each week, Kidsburgh is posting a new life lesson. The videos also will be shared worldwide on the Project FUEL website.

In this Week 7 episode, Meredith Colaizzi, council director of Girls on the Run, shares her life lesson to “be present.”
