I'm a Social Worker, 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.

  1. This is very powerful Relando and I’m sure there maybe various perspectives to this video. I relate to this from a cultural perspective. Belonging to what is called the ‘marginalised community’ (being Indian) there are many factors that can decide upon your fate. Believing in yourself and connecting with positivity results in you creating your own fate! :)

    • Hello Manisha! It’s been awhile. Thank you for stopping by! I can relate to this from a cultural perspective as well. There are many forms of intelligence, and it has also been proven that there is cultural bias in standardized testing that benefits people of european descent, and people who are upper class. I think some of the frustration behind that comes through in this video.
