I’m not even sure who we are. Let alone them.
I don’t even know you.
I do know me though.
I’m a woman, a mother, a teacher.
I care about equality for women, a better world for my child and your child too, and education.
Tell me about yourself.
You’re a ______________, a _____________, a ____________.
You care about ____________, _____________, and ____________.
It’s nice to meet you.

we might get somewhere, anywhere, but
