"I see myself in others and see others in myself as if I am looking in the mirror. I believe all humans are connected to one another in ways that cannot meet the naked eye but can be felt with an open heart." ~ Xahej (pronounced zah-edge; name derived from Sanskrit name “Sahaj” meaning “born within,” “spontaneous,” or “effortless”)
Xahej Bajipura’s purpose is to show and heal children by amplifying their voices. Due to her exposure to multiculturalism and varied lifestyles during her travels, growing up in San Francisco, and 15 years in empowering youth development, she has observed many value systems and learned that there is more than one path in life; none greater than another. As the nonprofit Show and Heal Founder and a public high school teacher, she stimulates the interconnectedness of humanity through Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging programming.
