    "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?"
    ### “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”

    Not that long ago Black people weren't able to go to college.

    Not that long ago Black people were harmed and killed for being caught reading.

    I never take for granted the educational opportunities that have been presented to me.

    I am grateful for my mentor who is important to civil rights movement and also supported me during my PhD process. I actually referred to her as my true chair.

    💯I'm soooo honored to be able to support other black women achieve their educational dream of earning a doctorate.

    I've had doctoral candidates reach out to me for support due to not feeling supported, wanting to give up being stuck or facing discrimination. I tried to support each one. And each has graduated....or will be very soon! Yaaas!

    I've learned that there are at least 40 women who pursued/are pursing an advanced degree because of seeing me. #representationmatters
    ·
    ·
    And I learned yesterday that a women I had the honor of playing a small role during her PhD journey successfully defended her dissertation last week. She came to me discouraged because she needed at least 100 people in her study and only had a few. She allowed me review her data collection instrument and I basically said "ummm do you mind if I mark this up" I gave her suggestions for how to change the instrument and get her sample. I saw her a month later and she gave me a huge hug and said "I have 112 participants. Thank you"

    Day 21: Not too long ago, I had to do some serious deep dive internet-ing in order to locate this book, ‘cause it was out-of-print and had not been available in the US. I have much to say about the complicated and frustrating choices that US publishers make when it comes to POC, non-US, and non-US POC writers, but I will leave that rant for another time. For now, please be aware that the book may or may not be available thanks to online platforms, but it’s sequel (more on that later) is still definitely in print and readily available to US readers. Lee Maracle is a First Nations, British Columbian author whose work is fabulous — Ravensong and Celia’s Song are the focus of chapter 2 in my #dissertation . .
    .
    To start, this book contains two suicides, an epidemic, tricksters, an adolescent female protagonist (high school senior), and a traditional frame narrative where the present-day narrator attempts to answer a question with a 1950s story. The past takes up the bulk of the novel as it is meant to explain/explore why the present conditions exist. .
    .
    Her dedication alludes to one of the novel’s underlying themes: medical racism. “To all the women who fought the epidemic when this country was not concerned with our health.” While the novel’s Native village desperately tries to save the sick, the white town’s doctors across the river refuse to help and/or provide supplies. All the while, the teenage protagonist juggles both caring for her village while trying to finish her senior year.
    .
    As @thecrashcourse World History recently reminded me and my students, disease and epidemics are history-making and altering events at both the micro and macro levels. Germs do not recognize the difference between walls, barricades, animals, and (healthy) human carriers — so how does agency work in a historical moment that defies intentional action or free will? Are we not masters of our own fate, citizens of our own making? .
    .
    Maracle and other Native authors, inside and outside the US, have quite a bit to say (and it needs to be heard) about those questions and nation-based, settler colonial concerns.

    Even the greatest writers need a great editor. No, really: https://lithub.com/marcel-proust-was-almost-impossible-to-edit/ #phdlife #dissertation #editing

    Chitta Vritti- Sanskrit for fluctuations of consciousness..... it’s about this time in the day that I’m tired and disheveled, and my mind has had MANY fluctuations.... moving from one thought “I wonder when i4 is gonna be completed” to “what is the best quantitative analysis to run for this variable”. It runs the full spectrum.
    -
    At this point I have to step away and quiet my mind. Pantajali defines yoga in Sutra 1:2: Yoga's Chitta Vritti Nirodha- the calming and quieting of the mind.... or quieting of the fluctuations. The more I reconnect back to my body the easier time I have stilling the mind. It takes physical action. So let’s move in.

    Monday, tonight, we are talking about Chitta vritti!
    🧘‍♀️ 7:30pm @wearewarriorone and free meditation after 💖

    Ps.... when is I4 going to be done?!? 🧠 🐒 #monkeymind

    “If you can't fly, run,
    if you can't run, walk,
    if you can't walk, crawl,
    but by all means, keep moving." -- Martin Luther King Jr.
    .

    .
    Very inspired by MLK today as I struggle with movement myself. I chose a career that isn't easy and isn't meant for people that look and think like me. So I continue to make movement, however small. When I was working on finishing my dissertation, I called it working at snail pace, then turtle pace, until I soon started running. Now, working on licensure and on launching my coaching business taking small steps each and every day. 🐌🐢🦊💪🏽
    .
    I can't describe the feeling I felt visiting MLKs hometown several years ago and the energy, zest, and conviction I felt to continue to lead and serve others. My aim to is to help others keep moving towards their dreams. MLKs quote completely encapsulates the Ganas & Go! way. Tienes ganas, let's go...let's move. One step at a time, however fast or slow. .
    .
    .
    How are you inspired to lead in honor of leaders that came before us? .
