See through other people’s eyes and don’t presume.
We're the best versions of ourselves when we truly accept the uniqueness and backgrounds of one-another's identities.
I’m hoping that even in the thing that you are currently surviving and currently pushing through, that you are finding ways to keep yourself supported.
What if you grew up believing asking for help didn’t matter?
I've learned that words can create spells. And words can even breake spells.
I share my story so that people who are going through what I've been through don't feel alone.
All I ever wanted was for people to be proud of me. And the only ones who matter are my family.
I've heard so many stories of other peoples lives and all I ever wanted to to was to share a piece of mine.
You, me... we are not broken people in my mind. We are experienced, we are used for reminders and examples of what and what not to do.
I always knew. Since I was born, I've had this deep feeling that I was special. But I didn't know that part of that uniqueness was attributed to the colour of my skin.
Because nothing moves as slow as the moment you feel lonely.
Isn't a smile itself enough to strike even the slightest licking both of happiness.
Diversity means being invited to the dance and inclusion is being asked to dance.
When you have tough conversations, when you have moments where you have to build relationships and build the love, it has to be done in person.
Demonstrate your value at all interactions. This means you sort of have to be ‘on’ all the time.
Do truly great work that has measurable results.
You have to love what you do, and you have to show it.
When you do well, we all do well!
A conspirator is someone who is actively trying to help you get to the next level. They're putting risk on themselves, risking their reputation. They're advocating for you on the highest levels.
A sponsor is somebody who's going to champion you and who has decision making capabilities. They champion you behind closed doors. This person takes you to the next level of leadership.
An ally is somebody who's going to put your idea forward, who's going to push you and represent you.
The first level of [allyship] is being an advocate. An advocate is somebody who promote and say it, but there's no risk in it. You're somebody who's just absorbing and understanding what diversity, equity, and inclusion means.
Everybody has some form of privilege and power in position.
How can I help somebody else that I have no experience in their stories?
How do you amplify others?
Inclusion means amplifying voices, even if they are a little different or unfamiliar.
