About Colleen

When Colleen had the idea for Big Shared World – to travel the world, ask people the same three questions along the way, and write a book about it – nobody told her not to. Instead, everyone in her life thought it was an incredible opportunity to put her boundless curiosity and passion for global issues and to good use. Always inquisitive, internationally minded, and up for an adventure, Colleen took off on a remarkable journey to explore the world and gain insight into peoples’ unique perspectives along the way.
