Living on a tiny island in the middle of the Caribbean may seem ideal to most, but for me it was a very STIFLING experience. I found it difficult to connect to the people around me – particularly my family – as it felt like they were having completely different experiences from my own. I just couldn’t find a space for myself.

It’s taken a while for me to feel SAFE exploring my identity, but I’m finally beginning to find people I feel comfortable around who help me create that space for myself and others.
