The word advocacy is frequently tossed around. I’m sure you have heard the sentence “I am an advocate of XYZ” or “Be your own advocate”. I myself have often used both of those sentences, but what does being an advocate really mean? I wanted to get to the bottom of it, so I started where most of my research starts… in a Google search bar. The results were simple. Actually, they were much less complex than I thought they would be.
Advocacy means taking action in support of something.
My mind frames this as passion. Being passionate enough to move. Anyone can be in support of something, however, if you are passionate enough to take action, to actually do something, you are an advocate.
Here is your call to action: Be a voice, be a social influencer, learn, then learn some more. Take action to make someone’s life better. Act to make your life better.
Find your passion.
Make a difference.
Be an advocate.
I would love for you to join the Breast Cancer Charities of America’s efforts toward breast cancer awareness. I have found my passion in iGoPink. Have you found yours?
