I was conditioned to believe I wasn't valuable because of who I am and what I was born with or without.

By relating to difference I saw my love & humanity in others

By taking responsibility for myself I found my power

By honoring my sovereignty I found my way

By honoring my being I found belonging

I am shiny &  sovereign AF y'all. 

And I want you to Shine With Me

That's why I started Defiance Exchange!
