Borderline Women Can!

Yesterday I attended an Awards Dinner for program (Early Childhood Education). I was one of four young women who had been nominated by a professor to receive an award for their during field practice.

What is field practice? Field practice means that I was at a childcare centre working directly with staff, children, families and the community. I was recognized for my ability to transfer theory into practice and by excelling in my role as a student early childhood educator.

GBC award

This is the first time I have been academically recognized in this form. I am extremely proud of myself!

This goes beyond academics though. I hope that by winning an award that is linked to directly working with children that others can see that women who experience borderline personality symptoms and/or are labeled with the disorder can be successful with children. Through the stereotype out the window!

  1. Kristen, congratulations! This is absolutely fantastic, and not just because of the borderline aspect — although I of course see your point and think it’s wonderful — but simply because you’re you and you do so many amazing things! πŸ™‚

  2. I am so thrilled for you! Congratulations on the award! But also, I’m thrilled that you are showing the world one step at a time that the stereotype about borderline personality does NOT mean incapable or “bad for” children! You rock!
