Why DEI?: I know what it feels like to not fit in. I would love to see a world where everyone can be who they are and be accepted as they are. This quote hits me deeply:
“Accept yourself as you are. And that is the most difficult thing in the world because it goes against your training, education, your culture. From the very beginning, you have been told how you should be; nobody has ever told you that you are good as you are.” – Osho
I admire and am inspired to be surrounded by people who believe that change can happen.
