Born in Singapore
"Have you watched the movie Love, Simon? The scene that resonated with me the most was when Simon, the main character, was coming out to his mother. She said, “You get to exhale now, Simon. You get to be more you than you have been in... in a very long time. You deserve everything you want.”
Those few lines really hit home for me. I had been holding on to my breath for so long, that I had forgotten what it feels like to exhale and just be myself. Like every other person, LGBTQ or straight, I just want to be loved and accepted for who I am."
