“When everything happened, there was a great degree of unsafety for me personally as a young activist. I was facing a lot of problems with family members, friends, school mates and I was even receiving threats on social media because my images were all over the media. I went through a lot with depression because I was not myself. My safety and security was not promised because I had to go into hiding. But all this has made me who I am today; stronger as a person, stronger belief in the work I am doing and also knowing and meeting people who fully accept me for who I am. It has also renewed my appreciation for people going through the same struggles in other countries. To be honest, it has shaped my mindset in so many ways that have translated into the life I am living today.”
