I would readdress the balance, the division of resources and power between everyone, not just the 1%.
I want to live in a world, want my daughter to grow up in world, where everyone is equal.
A world where everyone has a home, has enough food, has clothing and earns a livable wage.
A world where everyone has access to affordable - if not free - education and medical care.

A little socialist? A little idealistic?
Maybe, yes.
I want to believe in a political system where all people in society contribute to the production of goods and services and that those goods should be shared equally. And a world where this happens is

Sadly, this is not a world or a system that I live in and so I must continue to to balance my ideals with my situation, to educate myself and my family on the best ways to conduct ourselves in a world that is unfair

lots of different words come to my mind to describe myself:

asian american, woman, mother, activist, feminist, student, mentor, reader, writer, late-night-muser, chinese american daughter, east-coast inhabiting.

I am a mama, a blogger, a third generation Chinese American, and a higher education junkie.

I grew up in Acton, MA and after spending time in California, discovered that I am an east coast girl at heart. I dig sunny afternoons at the park, reading, and the night.
