Q: How do you think bias, oppression, etc. can best be addressed at an individual, community or policy level in Canada?
A: Simply by encouraging everyone to open their eyes and ears to the world around them.
I’ve learned to look on the world differently than I’d been taught to while growing up. Through that of experience. Lessons that would of otherwise been impossible to effectively learn without having lived through my accident.
I’m the person I am today because everything that has happened to me. And yet I still live to laugh. In all honesty I couldn’t tell you why that is. But it is.
No-one has every answer, least of all me, but everyone has a perspective they’ve obtained through experience. But aren’t you curious about why I’m the person I am? I’d like to think that reason alone gives my words merit.
