Why are you a strategist for good?
“I learned early on that words, and the meaning behind them, can be powerful forces for good or otherwise. We can learn a lot about ourselves and each other by listening to the words we use to convey our internal experiences through stories. I am a strategist for good because I have felt incredibly humbled by the opportunities I have had to be a steward of stories and experiences, and have seen their power to create transformational change.”
What’s your superpower?
“I deeply enjoy finding ways to communicate key information in a way that reduces the amount of time spent in indecision. As a project manager, I’m constantly working to uncover questions and barriers, and proactively creating solutions that move us forward while facilitating meaningful connection.”
Who is your intellectual crush?
“I am captivated by bell hooks. She had the ability to write in a way that brings deep and wide concepts into a scope that is both accessible and compelling. Her work underpins our contemporary understandings of racism, classism, sexism, and more. I am very much a student of her work.”
