  • I choose to not be a sideline teammate, a passenger-driver or an arm chair activist, knowing, feeling and calling out all that I find unjust yet take my privilege and just sit whilst there’s so much knowledge to share and collective empowerment to be a part of. I have to get up and do the work, starting with the self and look for opportunities to show kindness and compassion.
    There’s a huge abundance of knowledge and experiences in today’s world that can help foster positive change if we all can just take a moment and look inwards for the answers rather than outward for blame. Aren’t we all reflections of each other someway, somehow?

    I am a firm believer in the fact that If I DON’T like something about another person, that’s a chance for me to ask myself why. Is it out of a previous experience? Is it out of prejudice? Pre-conceived notions?
    A part of me feels the danger of these expressions, the vulnerability, the chocking feeling that I won’t make a difference, that I will fail. I am aware of all these and I won’t let them stop me. Failure doesn’t have a page in my books, not even on the last page.
