Looking ahead, I see a future where our young people are fierce they take the lessons we have shared with them, the examples we have set and move forward fearlessly and with excitement. That they look forward to building a community that reflects the ideals they believe and that represents love, justice, and unity. I believe young people who community workers like myself have poured into and been examples for are ready to lead and teach.
I was that young person for the generations before me. Learning from women in organizations like GirlTrek that teach and show us that selfcare and our healing is within our hands and the power is within us. That something as simple as walking 30 mins a day can make a huge difference in our lives. I see a future the reflects our power in action.
