I am an educator, organizer, and creator.
I come from a long line of educators and artists, and teaching and creativity have always woven themselves into my life experiences. As I develop as an activist and organizer, I have discovered that I have a deep need to share my knowledge and experience with others, and writing, art, and music have begun to sing to me once again, showing me the ways in which I might do that. I am actively learning and expanding as an individual, and as my life experiences continue to shape me, I aim to share what I have learned with those around me.
