Hello - Welcome to forwardBravely! My name is Robin Stimson and I received my Masters in Social Work in 2016. My day job consists of advocacy, grassroots coalition building and healing. This website will host my blog, relevant media, a future podcast and other content.
I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s current climate. That includes your personality, your life experiences, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. Sharing what matters with others involves risk, and requires discipline and patience. The truth is we all are capable of adding value to everyday conversations, personal and professional relationships, and within our diverse communities. We can learn from one another. After all, change for the better, and inspiring others to work together, means we all have a role to play in order to make things happen. My obsession with the concept of 'courage as a muscle that requires intentional thoughts and actions,' led me to create forwardBravely in 2020, and officially launch in 2022.
I invite you to explore the site, learn about my passions, and hopefully you will be inspired on your journey.
Sam Walton once said, "We're all working together; that's the secret." My goal for this space is that we challenge what we thought we knew, open our minds, take a deep breath and put that one foot forward. Bravely.
