What Gives Me Hope
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
I think that any position of power like that is a really tough place to be. What I think would make the world a better place, (Equality, empowerment, education, pro-choice, etc.) wouldn't make everyone happy, and may, in fact inspire even more violence and hatred. So what would I do? I don't know, and hope I'm never in that position.
What/who changed my life and why
I changed my life. Having been a victim of sexual, mental, and emotional abuse, it was up to me to make the decision that I was going to make those events and times in my life mean something, instead of giving away my power. I turned the darkest moments in my life into something positive, and it is a choice I make every day of my life to continue that attitude.
