Being a victim is not who I am. When I stand up for myself, my rights, my role...that is not playing the victim. What that is called is being ASSERTIVE. Not passive aggresive or aggresive. But people who don't like to be called out for their bad behavior will call you a victim when you assert yourself. That makes them the ones who are passive aggressive.

I believe in curiosity. During college students will be exposed to many types of diversity. I believe student affairs professionals should provide students opportunities to learn about these experiences. If students are informed they may not be as judgmental. Students may not love the diversity of others but they should be able to accept the diversity of others.
Reading is everything... Reading gives me something to talk about later on.... Reading is escape and the appetite of escape, its a witty to make contact with reality, its a way of making contact with someone thats imagination after a day thats all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss. - Nora Ephron
