“Some of the terminology like critical theory and critical thinking, intersectionality, implicit bias, and oppression are words I may have heard before, but never really knew their true meaning. Also, issues like residential schools, white privilege, internalized racism, prejudice, discrimination and intersectionality through the issues of classism have really helped opened my eyes about the many issues that surround an individual.”
