Change will not come if I wait for some other person or some other time because I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Diana Hawkins, Executive Director, states: We all face challenges and changes as we get older but we get wiser. I want to follow my heart and have the greatest opportunities as well as embrace my boldest dreams and turn them into realties. I want to be able to reach beyond what society says you are expected to do and focus on my studies, job, community and family.

Pursuing equality of opportunity and equity in outcomes are among the highest potential achievements of democracy. Such accomplishments require that we ask fundamental questions about ourselves as individuals and social beings. Who is the “We the people” who hold self-evident truths? Our responsibilities to each other must be recognized as the cornerstone of public health. Participating in HUE-Man and other community actions allows us to start considering ways to reduce not only disparities but the causes of disparities

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
