When applying for a study abroad program and asked to describe main influences on personal and professional development, does one mention education about the pervasiveness of white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, and capitalism in our education system and society — or not, in order to sound more presentable?
I am really unsure how to sugarcoat something like that. Thinking about and actually mentioning critical engagement with these issues should not make me feel like I will be perceived as an overzealous activist. I am just a human learning lessons in humility. I am weary of censoring myself.
On a brighter note, today’s sunshine! Today I photosynthesized.
