What does Liberty mean to you?
Liberty is the right to live the life you want, as long as you are not hurting others.
Who is your Role Model/Super Hero?
Obviously, I am very inspired by Lady Liberty and literally have looked up to her! I am also inspired by women who have made a difference by rising above hard situations and using the power of their words, to help others —> such as Malala Yousafzai.
Tell us about something that confuses you or that you do not understand.
There are a lot of things I am working to understand, hence this project. Some days it is how best to understand the root cause of racism, other days I fight understanding SoCal traffic!
What did you have for dinner last night?
Ha! I think this might be my favorite question! I was at a family BBQ and in SoCal that means carna asada and pollo tacos. For dessert, I had a piece of delicious white cake, of which, I just ate the frosting.
What are your thoughts on the current National Conversation, in the summer of 2018?
Through my personal filter, think it is very provocative. When I watch corporate “news,” I hear a lot of yelling and blame shifting. I rarely watch it now, because it’s really just a time suck. I think there is a lot of deflection going on, so I do my best to pay attention to my immediate surroundings and figure out ways to help my family, friends and community on a local levels.
What comes to mind when you think of the Statue of Liberty? Have you visited Liberty Island?
Liberty Enlightening the World has always inspired me. When I was a child, I actually climb to the crown -which was really cool and I encourage the experience! When I lived in Brooklyn in the early Y2K’s, I would always seek her out from the F train, to/from work in Manhattan. Just spotting her shimmer, even from the distance, always gave me chills. There has always been a connection there, near and far.
