What cause or causes get your main support?
Gender Equality & American for Art Action Fund (Art programs in schools)–
Gender Equality, because I think it’s important to have respect between both sexes. Yes , we aren’t biological the same but without each other the world just wouldn’t work! Also on a common sense note – the world isn’t the same from years ago and we need equal pay to keep up with all these high cost, but that’s another story.
Children are the future,also art is a wonderful way to express yourself ! Without Art programs the world would miss out on future beautiful creations. When I was a kid , Art class always kept me sane and happy!

How has your job and life shaped the causes that are important to you?
Over the years it has opened my eyes to so many different types of people. I have made so many connections and helped with adding positivity into the world one head of hair at a time.
And on my free time I still keep create Art; through film , writing and painting . My life goal is to never forget that it’s about the client at work and keeping that standard high from the very first time I picked up shears but also find the time to create when I am not behind the chair. Got to keep being inspired!

If you could tell anyone just one thing about your cause, what would you say?
Gender Equality is important because we need to change with the times and stop being so old school!
Kids need Art programs in order to find their voice and self expression, it’s unfair to cattle everyone into one type of educational programming. Some of us need visual aids in order to express what we mean, we shouldn’t be shut out!

Preferred Social Media account info and/or website info: http://www.anansistorytime.com or just look up Anansi Storytime in most places

What cause or causes get your main support?
Folklore, fairy tales, and storytelling are the main causes. I put a lot of effort into talking to others in the Audio Drama Podcasting community as well. I believe there is a lot to be learned from old stories, even if the morals are sometimes very different. I don’t want to see these stories lost to time. I try to do my best to make sure that a lot of these stories are available for a modern generation.
How has your job and life shaped the causes that are important to you?
My love of stories is what lead me to start Anansi Storytime. I have a collection of old fairy tale books… somewhere… I’ll find it. Anyhow, grew up with read and stories being important, I just want to make it so more people can enjoy some amazing stories.
If you could tell anyone one thing about your cause, what would that be?
Stories can tell us a lot about Culture and are a part of where we all come from. Sitting and listening to them gives us a better idea of the truth behind not just that people, but who we are as human beings.

What cause or causes get your main support?
Human Trafficking

How has your job and life shaped the causes that are important to you?
I was a receptionist for almost 7 years. I worked with people on a daily basis and I still do. I was exposed to human trafficking in 2013/2014 when I started really understanding and learning about it.

If you could tell anyone just one thing about your cause, what would you say?
Slavery didn’t end, it never ended with Abraham Lincoln, but it can end now. People need to be working towards a goal together, saving victims of human trafficking can help stop other issues associated with abuse and Stockholm Syndrome.

What cause or causes get your main support?
Mental Illness is something I take very seriously, specifically Anxiety Disorders
How has your job and life shaped the causes that are important to you?
Working in the Cosmetology industry since the age of 13 I’ve held a lot of differing positions each with varying levels of stress. Management positions, educator roles, and personal client management were things that made it difficult for me to let loose and enjoy myself. Having always been a bit of a natural planner, worry and stress came naturally with the additional responsibilities of higher positions.
I take Mental Illnesses and particularly Anxiety Disorders to heart because I suffer from anxiety. Finding tools to use as coping mechanisms has been amazing for me, but I still feel there’s a huge unnecessary stigma associated with wanting help.
As a result of this stigma and my desire to fight against that I am SUPER public about my anxiety and I have even created an Etsy shop where I sell kits that have mixes of coping mechanism tools all ready to go. I want to make everyone more comfortable with who they are and what they need to feel healthy.
If you could tell anyone just one thing about your cause, what would you say?
STOP. Just stop.
You being upset they don’t have your favorite soda in the fountain is probably not┬ágiving you a panic attack.
You wanting to clean before company comes over does not necessarily mean you suffer from OCD.
You being upset by a single bad grade does not necessarily mean you are depressed.
These are diseases, and if you don’t have them then it’s really not cool to use them as adjectives on your behavior.
Don’t make our illnesses into punchlines.
