      • Many people have been so compassionate and understanding towards me story, so when they tell me in public, its a different feeling when people write to me. Being recognized is always out of the blue of course and I appreciate the care and support given to me, knowing that my story makes people question there standards is an amazing feeling.

      • I wasn't allowed to express myself nor my feelings growing up. So I turned to journaling and writing everyday to release what I was feeling onto paper. I've been writing since I was 12 years old.
