Hello Beautiful Souls!
Thank you for taking the time to read about my journey so far. It’s been a blessing!
My transition into CPI’s Students for Economic Justice 2017 Fellowship has been full of physical, and mental growth. Throughout my time as a fellow so far, I have challenged myself to step out of my comfort zone in order for me to be a better listener, and obtain knowledge. Knowledge that will further my understanding of what organizing for economic justice looks, and feels like through multiple lenses. I have already acquired skills that I’m sure will support me throughout the rest of my life as an organizer, educator, and a limitless student.
As the rest of this summer continues to unfold, I’m hoping to apply all that I learn into my current practices. Not only so that I can better retain what I receive, but so that I can also share different skills with community that I cross paths with. Throughout these first weeks of being a SEJ Fellow, I’ve relearned how to be more inclusive with everyone I build work with. Thanks to SEJ I feel more ready and open for dialogue and for the opportunity to grow in effective ways as I step into new spaces. I wish to continue these feelings, and expand what once was my comfort zone within organizing.
I ask to those who would like to and can, to support the Students for Economic Justice Fellowship by donating. This fellowship has shown its lively, conscious, and passionate energy throughout many generations in SEJ Alumni’s. Experiences like mine and the rest of the fellows, are experiences that need to continue. One way to show support and appreciation for future fellows, is through funding.
I wish for you to be surrounded in abundance of rebellious conscious love, and thank you again.
