A Profile In Change: Jamie Tworkowski
We think love is a huge part of the answer but it’s not the cheap/pink hearts/Valentine's Day love. We're talking about the kind of love that fights and believes and hopes and says the difficult thing and refuses to give up.
We hear the word love a hundred times a day but what does it mean and what does it look like? What does it mean to love someone who's struggling with something we don't understand? What does it mean to love ourselves? For the questions that come with the issues we talk about, there are usually no easy answers. So perhaps the best place to start is to be willing to meet people in the questions, to be willing to talk about things that are uncomfortable or foreign, to really know people and to allow ourselves to really be known by other people.
TWLOHA has certainly changed a lot of things for me. My life looks very different now compared to two or three years ago. There's been some amazing opportunities and there's also been a lot of learning and growing pains along the way. More than anything, it's been a privilege to feel like I get to bring my heart to work, I get to do something I believe in, and then to hear from people that this work we're doing is helping—to hear that lives are changing and people are talking about things for the first time, or getting help for the first time. I feel like if I won the lottery, I'd keep doing what I'm doing now and I know it's pretty rare to be able to say that.
