Introducing myself and my journal: finding the child inside

Posted March 1, 2009 from Canada

About Me: I'm thirty-two years old and have two children. I work as a server in fine dinning, but was just excepted into college for the fall in Human Services Foundation. I'm not quite sure where I'm going after this program, but it's a good stepping stone to working with the vulnerable. I'm very interested in people, in human rights, and equality. Everyone should have a chance to shine. I want to be a great example to my daughter, on how she can do, and be, anything she wants. That she doesn't "need a man to rectify her existence, that the most profound relationship she will ever have is the one she will have with herself." I'm on the path to finding myself, and I really excited of what the future holds for myself and my family.

My Passions: working with the vulnerable

My Challenges: finding my voice, getting into school

My Vision for the Future: making the difference in peoples lives

I love that you have taken your interest in humanity and turned it around to empower your daughter, who will no doubt become a leader in her own right.
