Who am I? This is an important question to ask on the journey of SLC. How you hear, analyze or are transformed by what you learn through text, dialogue or experience is influenced by who you are.

Quote: In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change. Nhat Hanh
“Dialogue cannot exist without Humility.” How can I dialogue if I always project ignorance onto others and never perceive my own? How can I dialogue if I regard myself as cast apart from others, mere “its” in who I cannot recognize the others “I”s? How can I dialogue if I am closed and even offended by the contribution of others: How can I dialogue if I am afraid of being displaced? Paulo Freire. Pedagogy of the Oppressed Chapter 3, pg.89 Freire
