Lack of opportunities?
Autonomy over your body?
Respected work and education?
The American dream?
Your life has a lot of value.
The world loves you. You have done nothing wrong, and you deserve peace, love, freedom, and happiness.
You can achieve whatever your heart wants!
Your knowledge, your culture, and your thoughts are valuable.
Your dreams, your experiences, and your voice matter.
You are worthy and valuable. You have the right to be and belong, to be free and to do whatever makes you feel human.
Never forget that you are brave, intelligent, and full of light, and that no one, anywhere, should ever make you feel otherwise.
You’re not alone. I understand the difficult situation you are living, and if you’re okay with it, I want to accompany you.
Let’s walk together.
