This week’s featured syllabus is How to Self Advocate for the First Time in Your Life at the Age of 31 by Jordan Sondler.

Jordan’s comic brings us to a windy, winter beach where we comb the sand for shells, and uncover emotional wisdom. The piece reflects the process of meeting the world with a whole new sense of self. No sooner do we cultivate self-respect and boundaries, than life puts them to the test. What follows is a terrifying and triumphant journey. Navigating work, friendships, and love will require courage and occasional sacrifice, but will lead to new horizons that make it all worthwhile.
