Storyboard Text

  • I was raised in the Southern Baptist church. In my experience, this was a very conservative and very homogenous place. I went to an Episcopalian school that celebrated diversity of experience and thought.
  • As I grew up in these opposite-seeming communities, it felt like everything was separate; my Sundays and Wednesday nights were Southern Baptist, and my school days were Episcopalian. I became increasingly confused, because I did not realize that I could combine aspects of these to make my own beliefs.
  • I still feel like I'm navigating my religious beliefs. I want religion to play a large part in my life, but even after exploring different aspects of my faith, I remain confused about where my right fit is with competing ideas between home and my personal beliefs.
  • My parents put in me in an all-girls private school when I was going into kindergarten. In this environment, I truly never thought anything was out of my reach. My teachers instilled in me that I could do anything I wanted to do and be anything I wanted to be, which I now realize was an incredibly privileged space to be living in.
  • Middle school was the first time anyone ever challenged my personal understanding that I could do anything just as well as anyone else and that my voice and opinion was valuable. My youth pastor told me I couldn't play basketball with the boys because I probably would slow down the game. My opinions were also often silenced during discussions we had in Sunday school.
  • Since then, I've realized how powerful and disruptive that the female voice can be. In my current circumstances, I know that I have the privilege over many other people in society because of my racial and economic background. I also know how impactful my teachers' constant emphasis that my voice and being was powerful was on me. I hope to be one of those people for my students.
