“Don’t be afraid to have a voice. Advocate for yourself. If you have ideas, get involved. Be as careful as you can be, but just make sure you’re offering that piece of education and really just showing people and guiding them through our social work ways. Eventually, people will hear you and understand.”
– Stephanie Stodolka, LMSW
