Trading Laces: Economic status

In my economic status, I am putting myself through school and trying to pay for every little thing. It is very difficult to be the same as everyone else especially when everyone else that is in my life that lives here on campus has the money from their parents to do what they want to. But having a low income makes you appreciate everything you do have and to not take things in life for granted. SO even though having a low income can have it's down, it has a lot of up sides as well.

Walk in someone else's shoes.

Trading Laces encourages students to gain appreciation for the life experiences of individuals from different backgrounds by participating in and reflecting on highlighted events and experiences related to the following categories: gender, race, ability, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.

We ask students to walk a mile in another person's shoes. After all, as Thoreau said: "Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other's eyes for an instant?"

This blog houses the reflections of students who have participated in the Trading Laces challenge.
