I am a student at PSU in Portland, I have been introduced to this sight through my Women Studies course on activism. I am very excited and interested to learn about activism, it is something I have never really been exposed to. So I am hoping to learn more from this site. A little about me is that I am a going to school to become an Elementary Educator, and am really passionate about children and teaching. I feel a well rounded education is so important. I really want my students to feel comfortable in my classroom and feel that their voice is heard. I am also a very active person in sports. I love to dance, rock climb, swim and hike. I feel that the sports I am involved in has really helped me expand into the world and experience so many unique people.
Unfortunately I have not been exposed to activism in my own life. So I am hoping to broaden my understanding of the world and myself through my Women Studies class and through this site. I am excited to meet you all, and I cant wait to see what this adventure has in store for me :-)
