“I hit on something that to me has made a difference […]. That’s the idea of approaching Community Engagement with the idea of connection instead ot that word engagement and involvement. And I think it’s because when you see yourself going into a relationship where you are helping somebody else, then you are basically an outsider coming in and you’re setting yourself up to save other people. So when you go in to a relationship with this idea of  ‘I’m coming in, and I’m going to help and I’m going to serve’ it also sets up a hierarchy.” (04:50-05:36)
