I am Trina Carrion from Venezuela. Last year during a tour of South America, I thought about Googling the word “rowing” because I was starting to take an interest in this beautiful sport, when I discovered a website: The Global Rowing Club. Founder Jenifer Humming’s story captivated me immediately. From her widely varied website (big surprise, not just about rowing!), I could see Jenifer was a talented writer, a genius inventor, greatly enlightened and spiritual, a super high level athlete with an incredible personality and a magnet to attract people. When I read she was recruiting for interns, I decided to contact this intriguing woman and struck a deal with her to come to the U.S. to work on their behalf. I came to learn to be her assistant and train to become a fundraiser for The Global Rowing Club. While there, I was able to assist in translating extensive amounts of information about Jenifer and her projects, especially her medical device that my own government has taken great interest in manufacturing. I continue to make translations of her writings and there will be a section of the website soon entirely in Spanish.
I lived a wonderful experience during my 9 months of working and learning with Jenifer. Since her beautiful home used to be a health retreat, there was the added benefit I could learn to live a more spiritual life, eat a more natural diet, how to sprout seeds and ferment food, and my dream come true, I learned how to row.
She exposed me to so many things new to me and expanded my outlook on everything, maybe most magical was her special way with hummingbirds! I also got to meet and be around other interesting and brilliant people who believe in Jenifer and support her cause. My health drastically improved, my fitness level increased, my self-esteem went up, I am now able to feel a great peace of mind. I am a different person with a more open mind, spirit and personality more integrated. She had and still has an influence of great value so I consider she totally transformed my life. I am now living a new life. I feel now I am being useful, and I am in love with our beautiful planet and its inhabitants, I feel that working with her, apart from the honor that it represents for me, now a very bright future awaits for me.
I witnessed how she worked in her workshop, where with great effort, integrity and dedication, she prototypes her inventions. The workshop is simply amazing, with many tools and gadgets that she dominates to perfection and keeps in perfect condition and clean. In this workshop I had the opportunity to observe and help in the redesign of one of her inventions: the ErgoRack! But the most striking is the way she creates her inventions, it comes from a particular need she has for something and cannot find on the market or she would have bought it instead of making it. That happened with the ErgoRack. She needed a rack she could put on and take off of her car easily, that let her load her boat on the top without assistance and secure it safely. In the workshop she showed me also examples of previous inventions, real samples of her ingenuity.
As a prolific inventor she has created a lot of things that make life easier and more practical to everyone from rowing accessories, an important medical device created to save the lives of billions of people, things for sports and fun, even a software training program for instructors of group weight training and body pump, food recipes and natural cosmetics, and books that tell you how to live well, how to eat properly, and other books hopefully soon to be published. But her talents do not end here. Jenifer has created a major project called “The Cosmos Renewable Energy Solution.” With the help of business partners, sponsorship, fundraising and donations by people who love our planet, and the aid of specialists and engineers, this project is very ambitious and when accomplished would help to heal the ecosystem of our planet.
I have returned to Venezuela and plan from here to return to Europe where I will continue to get the word out about this important Campaign to make a big difference in the world by supporting Jenifer’s strategy to raise the funds to make The Cosmos a reality.
P.S. I wrote this in Spanish and translated to correct English with the help of Jenifer. ¡No escribo perfecto en inglés!
