I am white. I am a woman, but I grew up in a liberal and affluent suburb. I am pursuing a higher education. I hold liberal ideals and I try to educate myself on social issues that my experience does not allow me to understand.
I’m not one to talk about presidential candidates in a blog post. It’s just too exhausting to get into the nitty gritty of policy and what I think works, doesn’t work, what’s in my best interest, etc. just to be shouted into the void. So I’m not going to talk about policy or who I really support or any of that in this post. Just a disclaimer.
