Sometimes opportunities come out of nowhere. Last year I was asked to speak at a forum on Internet safety by the Bureau of Jewish Education. It ended up being a room with about six kids in it, not at all what they made it out to be. (It was a volunteer thing, anyway, and I was just happy to be seen as someone qualified to be on the program.)
Yesterday I was asked to speak again, on the same topic, but this time by the North American Association of Community Hebrew High Schools for their conference this summer at American Jewish University in Bel Air. They want me to do two breakout sessions, and they've asked about my fee.
Looks like I'm moving up in the world.
