Cajsa IM’d me the other night and asked me if I was interested in doing this blogger challenge…YUP! I love any opportunity to celebrate our unsung heroes!
Zai Lynch is a mate of mine from quite a ways back, she immediately sprung to mind for this. You see Zai is not one of the drama set, she’s not in a fashion clique and you may never have heard of her… but Zai is amazing. When I first met her she was heavily involved in all sorts of volunteer services to help other residents, one of these was the Mentoring program.
Zai later became active as a German speaking Linguist and has done a lot to break down the language barriers in SL.
You’re probably reading this and thinking that she must be someone that doesn’t have a lot going on in RL, and you’d be wrong, she has a very full RL… but the truly amazing thing about Zai is that she *makes* time to help others. For as long as I have known Zai this has been true.
I don’t catch up with Zai anywhere near as often as I should, I really have no excuse, I just suck basically. But she is often in my thoughts, and I check her wiki from time to time to see what latest craziness she’s been up to… oh! that’s the other thing about Zai, besides being a true altruist, she also is hilarious, she has a gadget for every occasion and it’s ALWAYS fun, and she just has a wacky kind spirit that makes me smile.
I raise my glass to the Zai’s of SL, because without people like her, SL would not be a place that I would want to stay or spend time in.
Love ya Zai,
PS I blatantly flogged the image from Zai’s Flickr stream *shh* I didn’t know if I should upload one of my pics of Zai with her funky dreads as she seems to be all chic nowadays! LOL
