Every day I help youth to believe in themselves and their capacity for a higher education. I have great relationships with "my kids" because I treat every single one with love and respect.
Why are you participating?: 

We live in a society where people are judged, stereotyped, and placed in boxes. It is too easy to look at a person and make a snap judgement about who they are and what they've done based on a single aspect of their appearance, demeanor, accent, etc.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I once smiled (huge) at a sad looking man with both legs missing in a wheelchair riding down the street. He quickly glanced at me and I smiled and waved at this complete stranger. He looked away after that glance and looked back when he realized I did that. His sad face turned into a happy face filled with a smile. I wondered if this crippled man ever got and gets people (even random) to acknowledge him with that much kindness and as simple as a smile.
Why are you participating?: 

Everyone is unique and filled with mystery. Stereotypes don't define us, well shouldn't. Everyone is weird in their own way and we should embrace our differences.
