"I'm a connector who absolutely loves people. I'm passionate about equity, intersectional feminism and access to safe/brave spaces for all. I'm also a person who wholeheartedly believes that anything is possible. This perspective is best summed up by George Bernard Shaw: 'Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.'"
