Things you can't put on a résumé aka things to write home to mom about

Some love I got and feel proud of & want to share.

"What I would like to say is this, you have shown a really dedicated effort towards building a really inclusive culture in the collective, and being of a marginalized identity, I can imagine that its tough work, especially when non-marginalized folks tend to assume that its not their job to build inclusivity. You've also assumed lots of non-operative tasks that few people take on, and you've done well. Speaking personally, I have experienced frustrations in the past with navigating the delicate line of being "efficient" and following am inclusive process. Never have I seen a collective member so dedicated to making sure inclusivity and process are part of the collective culture, and I think its extremely important to maintain. I personally have learned a lot from you, stuff that I'm definitely going to carry into my years of organizing, and overall, living."
