Gina Dobson grew up feeling different than the rest of her family. In a large bunch of academics, she was the child passionate about art. Bullied at school, she learned early on that it was okay to be different, and that those who demonstrate aggression are often people acting reflexively out of insecurity.
A singer and performer, Gina has also been an educator for more than 15 years. Her interest in scapegoating culminated to her recently published book, Stop, Scapegoat No More.
- Being bullied often happens to the strong, not simply vulnerable people.
- Writing about traumatic times can help unpack a lot of pain.
- Not forgiving another can be compared to you drinking the poison and expecting the other person to die.
