Bio: In all honesty, I am a very simple person who feels the need to simply simplify her life. I feel the need to take responsibility of my own life and not require the permission of authorities to be able to speak, learn, build and grow, just as all adults do. I have a great respect for the contributions made by our forefathers and historical figures who have built the bridge that we all must cross. The bridge to freedom, which can only be crossed by continuing to give, striving for change and supporting open minded businesses and groups. I plan to contribute and support a world that wants its basic needs and desires back. The people are not really asking for much, just food, water, a home and a social structure are really most anyone's only goals in life, but sadly I find myself and others untangling a complicated mess to fill a very uncomplicated void that was taken from them. The struggle for survival is costing us much more than we are gaining. My ultimate goal is to take back my right to learn by supporting the open badges project, where learning can take place anytime, anywhere and you are awarded or recognized for it. I want myself, and others, to take control of their education, it is child-like to let a degree or college have complete control. I believe we now have the tools to start taking control of our lives, we should still have a government body, but one in which we share power and protect our rights as equals, not as Uncle Sam vs. We The People.
