Throughout my few years of activism, a valuable lesson I have learned is to never be afraid to share your own personal experience. By sharing your story of why you feel strongly about an issue, it helps others relate and even compel them to join the cause. Also, it is a good way of letting people know that they are not alone in this struggle.
