Learning who I am as a person, what my opinions and beliefs are, and where they fit into the world. Learning about other people and their religions, beliefs, opinions, views. Finding where I fit in all that.
Learning to stand up for myself, and who I am. To be proud of who I am, what I represent, who I love and my family. To not give two rats what other people think of me, as it takes too much energy that is better spent making the world a better place.
It's not been the easiest of journey's but I've walked a long way in my shoes, and I'm not turning back now. My journey is about making the same journey easier for those coming behind me - be it others in the present, or my children's journey, or my children's journey. If I can be a part of ridding the world of inequalities, for my children, or my children's children...or even a child in today's society - then I've completed my purpose.
Though, at the same time, I've learnt a heap, and I would love to learn more.
