I use my voice to advocate for Transgender Rights because I believe that we all deserve to be treated with dignity

I have never been shy about my activism or been afraid to show support for the marginalised persons of our society. I am proudly outspoken about transgender rights and believe that the time to speak out is NOW! I also work with LGBT+ activists in a number of countries in which sexual acts between homosexuals are still illegal. I co-founded an organisation that champions these movements, which I am highly passionate about, and look to eradicate the stigmas surrounding the LGBT+ community. In the words of Sheryl Sandberg, “We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.”

Once you have been hurt, the fear that you could be hurt again will always follow you – but in order to avoid letting this fear control your life, you need to stop running away from it and face it so as to make space for something greater and bigger in your life.

Is it possible to truly forgive and have empathy if you choose not to want to be in the presence of the people that hurt you? Aren't you in a sense holding onto the forgiveness and pain? People say that forgiveness in not for the other person.

If I openly express forgiveness there comes expectations from the person being forgiven. I don't believe that people do not want to forgive others. I believe that the idea of expectations and the possibility of further hurt stops them. Forgiveness is also acceptance. Acceptance of another person and their behavior.

Sometimes you don't want to accept certain behaviors or energy in your space and it gets more complicated when others can't except your choices. It then becomes easier not to accept or forgive. I believe the most valuable traits to have is self awareness, respect of others and self respect. With these traits we can easily give people the space they need to exist, I have been wanting to express this for a long time.

If you understand why the other person did something bad to you, you will be thankful to GOD that you are not on this person's situation. It is not important that you will have relationship with this person again. When you forgive, all the benefits is yours.

When you get to the end of it all, you realise that the person you need to forgive the most is yourself. Now that is a mountain to climb but the view is indeed worth it all.

Within the last two years of my life I’ve been learning about forgiveness. I never understood how it affected my life and health, but I held onto the anger for so long.

It is inspiring to forgive who have hurt us coz we free ourselves. But when implementation comes it becomes difficult job. Certain issues are sooo deep which has turned to scars. I’ll definitely practise forgiveness.
