I believe in this principle, even though it isn’t always the popular opinion:  There’s always something to learn from people but in order to stand out and be original, we sometimes need to show the courage to be different and be our weird-selves by embracing our vulnerabilities.

Most Read Book: The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin

Favorite Story to Tell: I’ve always heard from my friends how my mother’s diction is so beautiful and she speaks so delicately but since she’s my mother, I didn’t really take notice of it. Lately, I’ve read a couple of writings she’s done about some incidences that happened in the last years (with her permission, of course). And I was surprised to see how her writing is also delicate and so nice to read, like she has some kind of original style. It made me think about how we might not notice things so close to us, and hopefully I’ve inherited some of her qualities.
