What about T.H.E. resonates with you? Why were you moved to join T.H.E. team?

In the beginning of 2014, I landed on T.H.E. I read the posts of people who contributed to the #IAmTheHumanExperience and said to myself, “Wow, people are being heard.” I contributed to the #IAmTheHumanExperience myself. I had a strong desire to be part of a movement that focuses on individual identities and gives people the opportunity to be heard.

What impassions you?

I am impassioned by learning about other people’s passions. Watching other people’s passion persuades me to learn more about it. I am also impassioned by teaching and learning.

What projects are you working on outside of T.H.E.?

I am involved with the Women in Technology movement in Chicago. Most of the work takes place at 1871 Chicago, an entrepreneurial hub for digital startups.

What are the top three things that instantly bring a smile to your face?

What’s one of your favorite aspects about the queer community?

I love that it’s “unusually different”—which can mean anything! I love that it is a community with an evolving history. It’s amazing!

What’s one thing you’d like to change within the queer community?

I would like for us to stop focusing too much on our differences. Sometimes this creates this “us” verses “them” view. We’re all queer. Let’s listen to each other’s stories and love one another. Linabel 2

What passions and strengths are you most excited to bring to T.H.E. and what aspects of T.H.E. are you most excited to get involved with?

I am excited to bring awareness. My strengths and passions are making other people aware of other people’s stories, sharing untold stories, and helping others understand what is going on in the queer community. I want to help people be aware of the progress the queer community is creating, whether it’s in the political, entertainment, educational, or sports scene.

I am excited to start getting involved with the contribution of queer news. I am also excited to learn more from my team members and fellow queer members.
