    When I grew up, there weren't any heroes I could relate to while I tried futilely to hide the person I am happy to be today. I finally found my voice, the voice that says it all right to revel in the so-called inappropriate joys, laughs and loves that storm inside my head, and I can't wait to share them. It took a long time to find that courage and now that it's here, I plan to use it well.
