When you look at me what do you see?

Do you see any kind of talent? What are you missing by overlooking me.

Do you see the creativity in me?

Does my head covering cause you a threat? Why; it may also be a medical reason for me.

Talk to me and hear my thoughts, let me show you the potential in me.

Shake my hand, touch; skin to skin! See – I am human too.

Help me to understand you and your ways.

See my potential value to your success.

Does the shade of my skin stop me meeting work targets?

Does my disability impact my brain ABILITY?

Does my gender restrict the job openings I may be interested in; ask me!

Do you see the tear come to my eyes at the rejection message when all my work colleagues get a personal “good morning” except me?

My age does not impact my creativity. I may not go running now; but check my chess moves for STRATEGY.

DO YOU EVEN SEE ME!
