That’s the biggest gift I can give anybody: ‘Wake up, be aware of who you are, what you’re doing and what you can do to prevent yourself from becoming ill.’
I wake up with a sense of wonder. I don’t dread the future. I like it.
It’s very important to write things down instantly, or you can lose the way you were thinking out a line. I have a rule that if I wake up at 3 in the morning and think of something, I write it down. I can’t wait until morning – it’ll be gone.
I didn’t wake up and decide to become an activist. But you couldn’t help notice the inequities, the injustices. It was all around you.
