I use my dance and my creative talents to create "safe space" events where women can gather and connect with one another to facilitate discovering and growing their personal power.

A very cool friend of mind was one of the first folks to participate; she inspires me!

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I guess I try to do small 'good deeds' all the time. I feel that the little things always count. Something as small as holding a door for someone or smiling at them can make their day. One time when I hadn't thought much of it I was at Walmart in a small town in Vermont and there was a person behind me who only had one of those Campbell handshake soups and a drink and I let them go ahead of me. Little did I know they were late for class less than a block a way and they were quite appreciative. She and I had a small conversation and I really liked her earrings, she ended up telling me that she made them and was unsure of them. She then gave them to me as a thank you even though I told her she didn't need to.
Why are you participating?: 

As for my labels of choice I feel that those are reasons people may talk about me. I currently work for a non-profit organization where I am able to use all of these labels in my work. I am a peer support worker/peer outreach counselor.
