▽ Look out for other people. Have their backs. No matter how different they are from you. We're all in this together.
▽ Have dreams. Set goals. Pursue goals with a fierce passion.
▽ Accept help from other people, even unlikely sources. But never downplay your own strengths or abandon your mission just because someone else doesn't understand it.
▽ Realize you are not your disabilities. You are not your past. You are not the labels others have given to you. These things are pieces of you but not your whole definition.
▽ Apply black eyeliner with gusto.
