Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I work hard every day to just listen to people. Sometimes people just need someone to listen.
Why are you participating?: 

I wanted to participate because society tries to define us and it’s so easy to fall victim to it. It’s time to stand up for ourselves and stop listening to the negative things people have to say about us.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I always try to find an attribute in strangers that I can compliment. Hair, jewelry, outfit, anything. It can really add a positive zing to a person’s day - And on a selfish level, the returning smile I usually receive adds a nice boost to my day as well.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating in this because I think the world needs as much positive as we can find. And how wonderful to look through and see how we see ourselves. What the world may see as our most important feature, may not be something that personally we consider that big a deal.

I went on a mission trip to Mexico to help build a church. It was a beautiful experience that I will never forget. ^_^
Why are you participating?: 

It really takes a toll on your self esteem when you feel judged about your weight. I am learning to love my body even if it doesn't meet society's standards.

My son is from Ghana. In Ghana he experienced discrimination because his mother was unmarried and they were poor. He came to the US (San Francisco) when he was 14 with a soccer team.
