What’s one thing you love about yourself? Have you always?
Through the process of gaining confidence in my abilities and being comfortable with the girl in the mirror, I realized that I am freer and more authentic when I trust myself to just exist. Not perform, just BE myself… and those who get it, we vibe.
Do you think people can really change?
Yes! But it is hard. People have to want to change or have a profound experience that forces their perspective to shift.
What are you currently working through that others can’t see?
Accepting my redefined identity as a daughter. My parents were older than most of my friends’ parents growing up. As someone who they patiently cultivated and wholeheartedly loved, it is my duty, responsibility, and honor to be there to support their late chapters. My identity as a daughter had been primarily someone who took and received. My identity now is someone who must graciously give.
