I am still enjoying and appreciating the sense of liberation the workshop, time, and community circle created at the workshop provided to me. For a long time, I was not sure if I could do this research well. I wanted to counter the stress and anxiety. So often, I wandered around my research goals, not towards them. I will always think of the powerful moments that motivated me during Nadine’s workshop whenever I encounter the “wall” that prohibits me from moving forward.
