With the start of the giving season and #GivingTuesday, I'm excited to see people standing for causes, missions, and people that they believe in. With our actions, we vote for the world we'd like to see.
For me, I give because there is not an alternative. My mentors introduced me to an artform that has changed the trajectory of my life for the better. The knowledge and inspiration poured into me since I started this journey of dance are wasted if I don't pay it forward. Talents are called gifts for a reason - they don't mean much until they are share with others.
And I hope everyone can find something to support. And most importantly, I hope everyone can take the spirit of the giving season and spread it beyond the holidays.
