Advocate as a person who publicly supports or recommends a particular cause or policy.
Activist as a person who campaigns to bring about political or social change.
Emotions are a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others.
Passion is a strong and barely controllable emotion
These words describe someone who is passionate and is put time and energy into creating a better future. Advocacy to me always seemed like something that would be super easy to do. Create an instagram page, write some blog posts and share motivational quotes every Monday #MotivationalMonday. I realize now that is so much more than what I originally expected.
Personally, I feel myself as being more of an advocate rather than activist, however, there are definitely days where activism takes place. This past week, my reasoning behind being an advocate became crystal clear. A few things hit home with me and it set in stone why I am writing this blog. Why I am pursuing a future for Pics 4 Passion.
And the reason behind my fight is to prove that Emotions are a sign of passion not weakness. Emotions are a powerful tool and the reason behind social and political change.
