(Level I – 2016)
Martin Luther King Jr. says that nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people. I want to be a courageous person who encourages other people to be empowered through nonviolent actions. I am a member of the research team for The Hegemony Project that is trying to determine how structural racism and other forms of hegemony can be combatted. Ultimately, I am interested in creating a more inclusive and love-based environment for people all over the world and from all backgrounds in a community that has never embraced diversity and fought for the rights of those who are marginalized.
