July 11th marked my 26th birthday. After 25 years on this Earth, my biggest lesson this year is that I have multiple identities that make up who I am and I want to introduce you to them all. I used to reject certain parts of me, but I'm learning to embrace all of me and my different dimensions are captured by my nicknames. I realized that I'm not one-dimensional and for those of you who only know one dimension of me, please take a moment to meet the rest of me.
