I work hard in my job as a teacher of psychology to encourage within my students feelings of empathy and respect for all individuals. I also spend time talking with anyone who comes my way about the hard times they may be facing and I try to help them gain new insights about their situations so that they can begin to move forward once again in their lives. I have a passion for teaching about the struggles of women worldwide and in planning educational and cultural events that honor women everywhere.
I am participating because I love the theme of this project and its commitment to fostering understanding among individuals with varying identities. Anything that works to bring people together in joyful ways, as this project does, is great in my book.
