Purpose and adversity go hand in hand. If you have purpose and goals in life, there is going to be adversity along the way. For Kyle, racism has been one of the primary adversities affecting him for a long time that he had to overcome. Young black children are growing up and seeing numerous acts of racism. But, spreading love and acceptance is something that has helped him despite the hate that he sees every day on social media, the news, and in his interactions. Spreading the message of love and acceptance is one of his purposes in life. In this episode, he discusses how his experience volunteering at Willow Elementary School in Lansing, MI. He used activities on purpose and facilitated conversations about love as a method to overcome adversity, which assisted with increasing his understanding of civic engagement.
