Citizen of the world,
That is who I am.
I am Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid. I am male and female and the box they call « other. » I am from here and I am from there.
I want my voice to be heard. The media is my ally. The media is my only ally, I am told.
I am portrayed as rich and poor, fat and skinny, living and dying.
My story is waiting to be told.
Indeed, who knows my story better than myself?
I ask you: who knows your story better than yourself?
So I will speak. I will cry. I will laugh. Not for me or my community alone, but for the world to see.
I will be heard. Not for the applause, but because. Just because
I have a unique story, just like any other story.
It is a story that matters, just like any other story.
It is not a fictional story. It is my story. It is your story. It is our story.
I am a citizen of the world,
I am a citizen of your world,
And this is just the beginning.
