"I thought that loving music, needing people, dancing, having fun and taking risks was wrong.
I thought I had to keep my true self hidden from other people.
Thank you for supporting me in freeing myself from the cage
that I had locked myself in for so many years. Thank you for helping me see that it is up to me to make things happen; it is my responsibility and my gift."
