hooks is the person who revealed the secret of academia to me, which is that when you use your own language, when love and passion are part of your work, you are able to reach more people. And isn’t that why we are in this business, to reach people? To be part of their process of growing and changing? Isn’t that what we look for in every job, in every conversation?
