  1. Thank you for putting to words feelings that I too have felt so much of my life as well—and not being able to put to words!! Code switching before there was a word for all of this….I am not a Black woman, but am a Chinese American woman —there is some intersectionality in being a woman of color living in America—and your words give me courage! Thank you for being an inspiration to bring your whole self— there is now no other way— amen to that!

    • It’s not easy but we and all the lose/miss out when we don’t. I like winning and I like seeing others win, too. There is NO other way to live or truly win without this at the forefront. Thanks for reading and engaging with my words and experiences! I’m so honored you found connection in it.

  2. Be strong and courageous in everything that you do! You show great strength in disclosing your feelings and that is empowering to many.
    Keep on keeping on!
