I'm a writer and photographer and athlete and graduate student. I'm a sister and daughter and friend. A huge sports fan and an organic foodie. A creative and an intellectual, a hope(ful) romantic and an endless dreamer.
my heart belongs in the mountains and nature, in coffee shops and urban centres & across the nations. it beats for justice and aches for peace and compassion on the margins.
mostly, I'm just a 22-year old girl captivated by my Saviour and trying to live His Kingdom in the ins and the outs of my entirely ordinary, often messy, and yet absolutely beautiful life here on the stunning west coast of Canada.
because more than anything else, I've fallen in love with this beautiful adventure of redemption and restoration he's weaving in my heart and across humanity...
“The consequence of the single story is this: It robs people of dignity. It makes our recognition of our equal humanity difficult. It emphasizes how we are different rather than how we are similar. “
“Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity.”
So incredibly spot on. The beauty of multiple stories and cultures vs. one single story and the danger of stereotypes. Powerful stuff.
