I found out that I won't get to speak at the TEDx event. I think that I am not good enough or something. I really wanted to give a talk about Roma and the Porajmos and education for our children. I gave them an outline and they said to me:
"There aren't Roma in the United States and if there are somewhere, they aren't in our area"... I said, but wait, I'm Roma! They said, no, you're not Roma...
So, I am very upset. I feel like I've let myself and everyone down. I don't have PhD or education qualification to say I am capable and I know what I am talking about. I don't know how to prove my Romanija? What do I have to do? Always wear diklo or something?
It's been one of those weeks. I made a mistake at university and got yelled at by my ... thesis committee adviser. I didn't understand and emailed the wrong person asking for some information. It was the wrong thing and I got in big trouble. I really don't understand academics. I don't understand anything.
Anyway. Sorry I can't get to speak about Roma and about Khetanes. I tried my hardest to arrange it, but if they don't even think Roma are here....
