What motivates you to be a changemaker in your community?

Growing up at the intersections of multiple identities, I’ve come to learn how the voices of marginalized groups can oftentimes be overlooked and go unheard. I hope that by working within these communities, sustainable change can be made, which also highlights the lived experiences of those within these communities.
