When dreams change
The past 12 months have led to a lot of changes, and for me that's caused a lot of questions and uncertainty. Let me share with you what I've been learning.

2 min book review: 'Me and white supremacy' by Layla F. Saad
‘Me and white supremacy’ by Layla F. Saad “In order to dismantle white supremacy, you must understand how much white privilege is a key aspect of your life, how you benefit whether knowingly or unknowingly from your whiteness, what that means for people who do not receive that same benefit, and how you can dismantle it. You cannot dismantle what you cannot see, you cannot challenge what you do not understand.” Have you read it? Is it something you want to read?
