Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I spend every day with adolescent boys in the foster care system teaching them how to grow, how to be amazing adults, how to make healthy relationships... and so much more
Why are you participating?: 

I'm a social worker and work in a group home for adolescent males -- they are constantly labeled and judged, and I see how that affects them all the time.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
There was an old guy on the street that said hi to me in Chinese, so I stopped to say hello because "你好" is not something you usually hear come out of an old white guy's mouth. Turns out he just wanted to share the stories of his travels with someone. Boy were they some stories to share.
Why are you participating?: 

I think it's important for Americans to ask themselves why they are labeled by others, how they are labeled, and why they label others what they label them. It's about conversation surrounding the right questions.
