People of Regent: Kaela

“Question everything. Whether it’s about yourself or other people, don’t be afraid to ask why you believe certain things. I am so passionate about questioning stereotypes, and realizing that just because it’s a people-of-regent-kaelacommon belief, doesn’t mean it’s always true. I think it’s important to be constantly questioning these things to yourself, and to not take everything you see at face value. If you’re thinking in your head, Oh, this person is doing that because they’re that ethnicity, try taking a step back and be like, Wait no, maybe they’re doing that because they’re them. Just try to look at people at a deeper level, and understand their motivation for doing things. Question why, because the answer isn’t always as simple as a common stereotype.”
