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
