How do I begin? WHERE do I begin? Tam, anything I say to endorse your nomination will always remain inadequate - I might be able to measure the dimensions of the sky sooner than find words to truly show you how amazing you are. So... Here, I try to do just that :-)
When I think of Tam, all I think of is her gentle, but steady and stable presence. Seeing her commenting on our posts and uplifting our spirits even as she amplifies our voices only reaffirms this for me: Tam cares, loves, and gives from her heart AND soul. A dedicated activist, a fierce feminist, a rooted and empathetic soul, and most of all, a giver, Tam is truly what the World Pulse spirit is all about. We can come from different parts of the world and STILL be assured of a compassionate, listening ear from Tam - one that comes along with limitless compassion and cultural competence - a truly intersectional feminist, no less. Tam is always committed to passing the mic than occupying space, to collaborate rather than compete, to lead alongisde and by example, and to celebrate sisterhood by being there for those that seek her out even if it isn't particularly easy for her to do at that particular moment.
