Introducing myself and my journal: Newcomer

sdc11702.JPG

About Me:
My name is Corin. I'm a senior college student in Portland, OR. I'm taking a Women, Activism, and Social Change class currently because I am interested in gaining equal rights for all people everywhere as I'm sure many others desire to obtain as well. I desire to learn as much as I can from the world I live in and the people I encounter. Even though having a journal on this website is a requirement for class, I believe that I can learn a lot more about what's going on in the world than from what is broadcasted on our limited news stations in the U.S. I wish to better understand how to use my voice and learn that what I have to share with the world is valid enough to be heard loud and clear. Everyone deserves to feel peace and freedom, myself included.

My Passions:
The arts, music, theatre/acting, dance, comedy, human rights

My Challenges:
I apologize too often, being afraid of my true self, not giving myself enough credit, low confidence (at times)

My Vision for the Future:
To learn as much as I can from the world around me and find a cause (or multiple) that I am most interested in to futher pursue making changes in.

My Areas of Expertise:
I'm a Liberal Studies student currently. I'm not sure if I can honestly say I obtain "expertise" of any particular topic.
