I believe in soulmates, and the might of trusting intuition when you just know.
I believe in speaking for those who have lost their right to speak. Sharing our stories has an inherent boldness to it which ignites change, empathy and action.
I believe anyone can turn their life around in the span of two years with a good education.
I don't believe that people change. Who you are at your core is who you are. No amount of education, travel or life experience will fix it, though it will give the worst of us better window dressing.
I don't believe in the innate goodness of every human being. People are awful - some of them actually pride themselves on it! - that's just a fact of life. Work around it.
I don't believe that fear, shame, ridicule or lies are something that should be carried forward in life. They don't deserve the authority and power people give them.
