Like many of my peers whose experiences I identify with, I find it difficult nay impossible to understand what is it about a list of achievements that communicates expertise. I’ve worked for long enough now and have gathered enough data to confidently conclude the following: that chance is nearly as frequently the decisive operative factor in a decision making process concerned with resource distribution in a supremacist, racist, and ableist governing framework as is political agenda and personal prejudice, be them negative or positive prejudice.
Without developing this argument any further, because here is not the place and now is not the time, I will ask you to approach the following list not as a complete list of achievements and/or accomplishments (static, finite) but a record of relationships I’ve invested myself in and activities I’ve committed to over the years (dynamic, ongoing).
I ask this of you because I do not yet know how to highlight within linear standards–and succinctly–those values I am intuitively drawn towards as a non-binary queer with ADHD who is only beginning to learn how to function proactively within given systems. I ask this of you because communication is not a one way street. I am conscious of the fact that if ever I am to learn how to communicate with others–with strangers, especially–what is it that I care for and why, I will not have come to that capacity on my own.
