How to be a good advocate

April 30, 2021
I will be turning 32 years old on May 18, I want to make few key points on how to be a good advocate for others. I had to stand up for myself… a lot. I lost count to be honest. As I got older and wiser, I was kind of gullible but now I can read people like a book. I don’t know how it began and what came over me. As I remember, throughout middle and high school I demanded to be challenged. It was a simple question but effective. This was some years ago. Depending on the situation, there are millions of ways on how to effectively speak to people. And I found myself in this environment, since I stood up for myself now it is my turn to do the same for others.

I work in a non-profit organization that helps people with disabilities. Organizations like where I work are the voice for many people who are weaker and who can’t stand up for themselves. I am participating in a workshop outside of that talks about how to advocate for others and fight the injustice in the functional society that effects everyone. But I will cut to the chase and I am going to list how you can help yourself and others:

1.) Social issues- Find something that you are really passionate about. My subject of choice is that everyone should have a stable employment.

2.) Research- Take a look where a job can be found. I have looked online and called places. I lost count where I called and applied to.

3.) Network- If you use social media, ask your friends if they know anyone who is hiring.

4.) Ask yourself- If there a right job for me? This is a question people ask when a searching for a job.

If you got a chance to read articles about Japan and technology you can say I have specific interests. But in theory I am into multiculturalism and linguist, even though I use simple language on my page.
