- A friend of mine wrote this amazing article on Medium about culture and language, and here I quote one of the powerful statements he voiced out: "What better way to signify freedom than disregarding the audience expectation, than contradicting category, than boldly stating our existence with our bodies.

Claim your self-agency, and stay tuned for all further developments of the idea. Don’t forget to water yourself and grow."
