“Diversity is a strength, not a division.
I attend a lot of meetings where I’m the only woman. And I attend many, many meetings where I’m the only Oriental woman. You can perhaps imagine how that feels. Have you ever had the feeling that you’re the odd one, the different one? Maybe even too odd or different for this church? The truth is that you’re not odd; you’re special.
When white light falls on a wall, it makes a white wall. But when it passes through a prism, that same light makes a rainbow on the wall.”
-Chieko Okazaki, "Lighten Up", p. 4
