My whole career until @btwfoundation had been about convincing people that the voices of young people could make a difference. I found witty, creative and desperate ways to try and prove what I knew to be so fundamentally true to lawmakers, funders and the media. One day my phone rang and I heard that these incredible, powerful forces of nature wanted to start a foundation and they wanted to center it around the fact that young people are building a kinder and braver world. They used confident, present tense, powerful language that recognized the challenges that we were facing but led with kindness, hopefulness and resilience. I signed up, immediately. It is and will forever be the privilege of a lifetime to work for someone who uses every platform, every microphone, every moment - publicly and privately - to remind the world that kindness can save lives, that stories heal and that the world needs us to be our true, authentic selves and that we each deserve to be met with community and compassion. Next up, she teaches me how to play poker because she is amazing at every-f*cking-thing she does. While I learn about the rules of Texas Hold 'Em, please consider supporting our work at Born This Way Foundation - through a donation, by following us on social media and inviting your friends to connect and most importantly, by committing every day to building a kinder, braver world.
