I choose this specialization because I really like the thought of advocating for children and families. I personally feel as if advocating chose me, when I started my journey in early childhood education I met a little girl that was the angriest three-year-old I have ever met. Yet over time, I became that little girl voice, the voice that restore a family relationship that was falling apart. Over my 15 plus years of working in early childhood education, I have been the voice for many children, as a result, restore many relationships. What I like about advocacy is being able to help families create a path that fits their needs, this is often done through finding resources, listening, and providing training. What I hope to learn from this class is the public policy. I want to know how to reach legislators or how to propose a change that will benefit families and children. I also want to explore ways that I can find long lasting funding to support families and community and they embrace their journey change.
