What advice can you give a student? Always ask questions! Oftentimes it is so easy to talk yourself out of asking questions. Whether it be clarifying what an instructor said, utilizing resources offered, or gathering information– you must ask.

“Black and Third World people are expected to educate white people as to our humanity. Women are expected to educate men. Lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world. The oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions. There is a constant drain of energy which might be better used in redefining ourselves and devising realistic scenarios for altering the present and constructing the future.”

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
