Heathenhippie.com is dedicated to the simple mission of spreading awareness about human rights and encouraging critical thinking about social issues.
My name is Jessica. I am a mom of 2 little boys, and a writer. I also have a tendency to be opinionated and stubborn. I get pissed off about human rights issues a LOT. But, I decided to stop flooding my Facebook friends with my ramblings and arguments. Instead, I decided I would create this website for you, my readers and friends. That’s not the only reason, but it is a big one.
I have a B.A. in Sociology and a Graduate Certificate (which basically amounts to 95% of a graduate degree, but I never finished. I know. I know…) in Elementary Education. I used to be a teacher and a social worker. I loved both jobs, but hated the systems. I also felt helpless sometimes because I was bound by procedures and structures that were impossible for me to navigate in a productive way. The kids I worked with were always some of my favorite people. But, everything about the jobs always sucked beyond belief and made me feel like I was running out of air.
In any case, since I don’t work in those fields in a traditional sense anymore, I devote a lot of time to researching and writing about them.
Enough about me. Tell me something about YOU:
