This morning I made the flight to my homeland, lovely Chicago Illinois. Tonight I had the pleasure to give the How to Be a Bad Victim program to about 50 amazing college women, most of whom were in the thick of sorority recruitment. I really can’t think of a better way to kick off the school year than to give serious attention to issues like personal safety and self-defense. And on campuses like UIC in the middle of a transforming urban area, it’s especially important to be proactive about these issues. We had a great time, and I want to send out a huge thank you to Veronica Rodriguez for pulling together an excellent event, even in the madness of back to school!
