Perseverance builds character.
How does perseverance come about? By rising through a struggle, whether it is a provoked or unprovoked event that questions one’s ability to endure and survive a hardship. It is through one’s suffering and survival of such hardships in life -whether physical or mental - that one is able to build upon their character, thus leading to hope.
We are able to see these modes of struggle and perseverance in various facets from ethnicity, gender, and politics, to name a few, and we would like to hear, learn, and share them in our publication.

In her 1988 book A Burst of Light, Audre Lorde said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare.” The concept of self-care, which arose through the activist practices specifically of marginalized groups, has been increasingly adopted and discussed by health care settings, non-profit organizations, commercial and marketing enterprises, and psychological approaches. National discourse around self-care has increased exponentially since the 2016 presidential election. Yet, few academics have explored the theory, implementation, and impacts of this concept.
