Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I challenge those that use problematic language, which boxes others into stereotypes that they personally do not identify.
Why are you participating?: 

I see this project as a place to share our identities, which we often do not get a chance to share with strangers. Using this platform, a mosaic of labels and faces challenges stereotypes and single story narratives.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Holding doors and smiling at strangers is my favorite thing to do throughout the day. I get stuck holding doors for long periods of time. I also work tirelessly to educate, understand, and share empathy, compassion with those around me
Why are you participating?: 

Because I hear evil everywhere I go. Because I see evil everywhere I go. Because I need to speak against evil

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Give people another chance to explain themselves.
Why are you participating?: 

I think that self definition is important. We may never get away from labels but I would love for us to get beneath the labels to come away with a better understanding of the value that they hold (or don't hold) for individuals.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
One day at lunch in school, this girl from one of my classes walked right up to my friend sitting next to me and just started to pour out the contents of the entire milk carton all over her head. I quickly stood up in my friend's defense, when the girl asked me if I had a problem. I bluntly explained that I did, because what she did was completely random and absolutely uncalled for. She pointed to my face, and said that her and I were to fight after school. While I agreed, as soon as the last bell rang, I hopped on my bus home as fast as I could. As I saw her in class after that, she never did anything of the like, to my attention or knowledge.
Why are you participating?: 

I once read from a brilliant poet that "There are ways of understanding people that do not require words. And if you look close enough you could see, a lot of life and a little bit of death burning through their eyes.

Shayna

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I participated in two mission trips to Guatemala.
Why are you participating?: 

I believe that everyone should embrace the characteristics that make them who they are. Everyone should take pride in themselves and what they have to offer the world, because we all have something incredible to offer.
