With the elections right around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to talk about how we address and represent ourselves, politically.
Representation in politics. Being political. Both terms that can be presumably defined out of a history or government class’s textbook. I know I am not the only one who was intimidated by history class, all the terminology and broad concepts going right over my head. I know I am not the only one who felt intimidated by the peers around me who absorbed and understood concepts, events, important issues, etc. so quickly. I know I am also not the only one who never considered themself political until this year (even when I was more politically involved than I presumed). Politics are intimidating.
