Self-expression is a powerful set of behaviors and choices that signal our unique perspective to those around us. These cues come from not just what we say, but how we say it; not just from how we dress, but how we move through social spaces. Intentionally fostering our self-expression is an active practice of identity and can be extremely empowering.

Learning to become confident in expressing ourselves can take practice and support. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
