My dreams

My dream is to be able to stay open and self-critical in my own work going forward and to keep challenging myself as I encounter unknown worlds through new people.

On the other hand, my dream is for my work to become unnecessary at some point in the future, as equality becomes the norm in people’s thinking.

My dream is, to quote Ynestra King, an entirely new kind of pie with enough slices for everyone.

“I am not interested in an equal slice of a rotten pie.”
