Thank you for sharing this! I spent several years in Residence Life, and was put into a position where I was forced out of the department. It was painful to have student leaders ask about my experience in the department, when I wanted to yell, “RUN AWAY!” I agree with Reginald, in that it’s time to re-evaluate higher education, specifically our policies and how people are treated. The most salient line for me was: “Therefore, I will no longer be the recruiter for my oppressor.”
Thank you for helping put the words to many experiences. I am still in a place of anger, and might always be, about my prior experiences, and this just touched my soul.
