While attending Social Innovation Summit 2015, I had the opportunity to have my portrait taken by Robert Fogarty of Dear World.
I’ve shared my story plenty of times - whether one-on-one with old friends, new friends, and everything in between or standing next to the President of the United States - but sharing my truth on my own skin seemed to close the distance between words and souls.
20 years ago I came to the US with a heart that knew all things were possible. But circumstances changed and reality stalled then shattered hope. 10 years ago I embarked on a difficult but necessary journey - to carve out every space possible to live life on my terms.
As the years rolled on, I challenged the boundaries of “permitted” space, “safe” space, “my” space. I dreamed of change and anchored by a strength not of my own making, I live changed. #DreamChangeLiveChanged
Thank you @DearWorld for the amazing experience!
