Quotes from the news wire:
You can not be on social media all the time, checking your likes and your comments. You have to trust in what youre doing, and in your purpose, and move forward, you can not be scrolling and go, Oh, people dont like this, or, They dont like this hair color, and then mold yourself to fit what a small group of people who have ever-changing opinions think about you. Dont let that s -- t guide you. Thats not a north star. Thats the devil.
I would describe myself as a seeker. A seeker is someone who is never content to have obtained enough knowledge. History only gives us a one-sided view of the truth. That’s something I know from personal experience. My own history has been rewritten by other people who had a vested interest in changing the narrative, i haven’t spent my entire life building a career in academia so I don’t have to worry about my reputation or being rebuked by my colleagues, which allows me to push back on the status quo. So much of our history needs to be re-examined.
