"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any," Alice Walker
Speaking truth to power isn’t some empty cliché--at least not for me. It is a guiding force for my work, whether creative writing, journalism,opinion essays, workshops or consulting. The mission is to teach people how to challenge power but also how to empower themselves.
I see myself, always, as a positive force in the world, acting deliberately and with purpose to make things and life better for the people I meet on my journey.
