“They laugh at me because I’m different, I laugh at them because they are the same” - Kurt Cobain
I’ve seen many post where newly Social Workers questioned their acceptance in the field based off their appearance, race, background and more.
I’m here to tell you I definitely went through a time where I was frowned upon and clients actually requesting to have a “white” Social Worker, fellow coworkers not sure if I was competent enough, someone telling me I’m overdressed to be a “Social Worker” 👀👀
Y’all know the stories can go on.....
Always remember your work ethics will speak for themselves. No need to be questioned, feel confident in you who are and what you can bring to the table!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
Many people aren’t worried about what you look like nowadays.
People are looking for true authentic connections and how you can help them!
💛💛 Change the narrative!
💛💛 Shift the focus!
💛💛 Embrace being you!
