What I am most proud of: Realizing that the intersections of my identity serve a unique purpose by allowing me to connect different people and their disparate perspectives.
I do what I do because: I get to contribute to a movement focused on empowering people to create the transformations they seek.
I think the world would be better if: People endeavored to meet people where they are. Emotional intelligence and awareness brings us closer to one another.
