"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good."
"I wonder how many people I’ve looked at all my life and never seen."
"Softness is not weakness.
It takes courage to stay delicate
in a world this cruel."

" ‘Discrimination is Discrimination’ by Groundation Grenada – addresses the fact that while most people in the Caribbean reject other forms of arbitrary discrimination - they understand why it is problematic and toxic for our societies - sadly, the same understanding isn’t extended to discrimination based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity (SOGI).
