I am a 25 year old American citizen living
in Nottingham, England.
I am seeking a way
into the feminist world as an activist
on a more professional level. I volunteer
some free time to local charities but
need to become more involved! I am currently
reading Manifesta, which just gets me
even more anxious to get started! I read
so many books on feminism and am so inspired,
but I feel that I don't know where to
go has far as actually making a difference
in women's rights.
I feel very strong towards reproductive
rights and would like to aim in that
direction, just how? I don't have extra
money to send for donations or to travel
places very often, but I have the passion
and need. I sometimes feel guilty for
not doing more, that I'm taking for granted
all the suffering and strength that has
been put into equal rights and feminism.
I have journalism experience from high
school, an Associate of Arts degree from
a community college, and am currently
in my final year of my Bachelors Degree
in Psychology and Stress Management from
Breyer State University through a distant
learning contract. I am also in the process
of starting a training course in freelance
editing and proofreading.
I am so confused and don't know which
paths to take in order to really make
the most of out of my life as a strong
young woman. I wish I had a person to
guide me and to show me some possible
directions. Do you know anyone in the
Nottingham area that would be willing
to take me under their wing?! Probably
not, but I had to ask!! I would treasure
all the advice you can offer.
Thank you for your time and I wish you
luck in all you do.
