I recently came across this video whilst searching for something else and it really struck me because her experience in many ways resonated with mine. I had been feeling a bit down and it really cheered me up and gave me a more positive sense about the journey I am on. It made me cry some of those happy tears.
When she mentions about having people tell her she ‘should not exist’ and street abuse, that reminds me of a phase I had to deal with, and I’m aware many others go through the same. It made me feel more positive because it made me realise how far I have come, and I feel it is inspiring – I wish I’d had someone say that to me back when I was going through that. The gradual change she shows through her clothing and voice are of course something I have also experienced and it’s wonderful to see that condensed into a few minutes in such a creative way.
