Are you aware of the way your choice of words reflect who you are and the way others see you?  Many things influence the words we choose to express ourselves: family, peers, ethnicity, economic status, gender, generation, education, work, community and experience.  In this Conversation for Change, we will explore the impact of our choices in language use as well as the way we express our thoughts, ideas, beliefs and emotions.
