    I've been struggling with these memories

    You know my name, but not my story.

    I am strong, yet also weak. I am independent, yet also dependent. I am optimist, yet pessimist. I am many different things, which make me who I am. I tend to stand up and voice my opinion. However, what happens when you are silenced. What happens when you are given a choice to...
