Meet Cultures of Dignity’s newest intern!
Cultures of Dignity: Why are you working with Cultures of Dignity?
Ramiz: I want to be able to help facilitate conversation between youth to benefit their understanding of themselves and the world around them.
Cultures of Dignity: If you could have any superpower what would it be?
As a runner, it would be very helpful if I had super speed. Although, I’m not sure if I would be allowed to race if my power were to be discovered. Maybe I’d lose on purpose like Dash from The Incredibles.
Cultures of Dignity: What projects will you be working on with Cultures of Dignity?
I’ll be helping create Owning Up to Student to Student Lessons, a project which consists of opening up discussion between younger kids and teenagers about different aspects of their life in order to provide new perspectives and understanding of the things around them.
Cultures of Dignity: What is an issue you see in schools you want to fix?
An issue I’d love to see fixed would be the lack of ways for students to communicate with teachers about something they would like to change, don’t understand or they think is unfair. There should be more defined ways of students being able to talk with their teachers in a way that is deemed respectful by the teachers themselves.
