Identify yourself

I am not to be judged based off of the amount of melanin that my skin possesses or lacks

I am strong, I am fierce

I am not to be isolated based off of the amount of knowledge that my brain holds captive

I am young, I am here

I am not to feel unworthy just because I am misunderstood

I are, I will, I am a young woman who demands to be heard

I am Marie and I define self-respect.

I am who I am
