The topic of diversity is super important to me. As a white child growing up in a mixed family, I have always been aware of the ways we kids were treated differently in public.

Why should a white woman address diversity? Because everyone should. Because the problem starts here and needs to be addressed. Because I can. Because equity is a beautiful thing. Because I screw up often enough to know how it feels to mess up, get back up, admit it, and keep trying. Because I’d like to encourage others to have the courage to make life better for everyone. Because comfort zones are way overrated.
