Why Use

As the Social Media Community Manager for SWHelper, I’ll be helping with the weekly Social Work Chats that take place on Mondays at 8pm EST using the #SWUnited hashtag. These conversations serve to provide information and awareness on today’s social issues.

I will also serve as a contributor, sharing selected posts from my Blog: Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian (N.A.H.) at with readers of the SocialWork Helper Blog to further my desire to improve intergroup relations, and build more equitable and inclusive communities while encouraging others to take social action in their own ways.

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.

    Oh, I almost forgot to compliment you on your new layout… it looks great! Much lighter and more cheerful than your prior version (although it too looked very professional).

    • Thanks Dorlee! I think it is a wonderful opportunity, and I love working with Deona and Rachel from the Political Social Worker blog.

      I also appreciate the compliment on my new layout. I like that the font’s a lot bigger than my previous look, and hopefully that will help with it’s readability and attractiveness to visitors. Its a work in progress and I’m doing some experimenting. I’m not yet sure about what the end result will look like, but I’m so glad to hear that you like this one!

      Thanks for visiting!
