“I am proud to be the daughter of two immigrants. My parents along with all of my aunts and uncles left their homes so they could create a better life for their future children. I’d like to know where there is threat and harm coming from something like that because all I have seen is selflessness and the greatest intentions. I would not have the life that I do now if it weren’t for them and a country that welcomed them in to give them this opportunity. What is happening in our country today is not okay. It’s inhumane. We need to do better.” [Instagram]
Staying silent does more harm than good. And we’re not just going to spew things out when it’s convenient for us. (Taylor Swift) We’ve refrained from political views on Yow Yow! for a long time, but my education from Seattle University has taught me to do otherwise and that’s the part that we need to voice right now. We’ve been retweeting passive aggressive tweets since before the election and I know I’ve had to stop myself from saying things here, but enough is enough. This isn’t what we signed up for, but no one is accepting it and that to me is extremely powerful right now. I’m excited to be in the Bay Area – a place where individuals are continuing to fight this every day because it is the right thing to do and using their voices to do good. We’re going to do that too.
