I honestly never thought I'd be here.
I'm an artist. A singer. A fiction writer. A stay-at-home mom. Once upon a time I was a teacher. But a "social worker"? I never would have guessed it.
I say that in quotes because I still don't really see what I do as social work. Or work, really. And that has taught me the most about the roles we play in life and those feelings of being unqualified or less-than.
