Cheryl Greene believes the best way to see the world is by bicycle. After an epic journey through New Zealand by bike in her early 20s, she attended graduate school, worked and taught. Eventually, she earned a PhD in English Studies with a focus on rhetoric and social linguistics —and wrote some about women’s documentary films. Having taught for many years, she eventually left academia to give back in other ways. Believing the future lies in countries attaining the UN Women’s Sustainable Development Goals — she supports girl’s educational opportunities everywhere and works with volunteer groups in Bangalore and the US to create a more gender equal future.
