I believe that on the ally continuum, I am an aware individual. I am very much aware of the issues happening in the world and I continue to keep myself educated on them as well. I consider myself a safe and quiet individual, so I think that makes it harder for me to be active or an advocate. It is something I am definitely working harder to become. It is difficult for me to speak about controversial topics, but it is something that I do need to work for because it is extremely important. I am able to stand up for myself and others when something is occurring directly in front of me, but I need to improve on my skills to supports others on a more global basis.
