It’s fun watching people attempt to imagine my face from my name. My first name is notably of African American origin, but my last name tells a different story, so people don’t know what to expect. And it’s always the same vice versa when people who’ve met me, learn my name. I enjoy confusing them. My identity is not merely one portion of me, it is everything that has contributed in total.
