    My mother gave birth to me at Mount Sinai hospital in Toronto, Ontario on August 31st, 1995. I was born with a lot of what society would call, problems, but I’d like to think of them as awesome differences.

    When I lost my cousin to suicide in 2010, my whole world as I knew it came crumbling down. I was only 16, and I couldn’t understand how someone so loving, joyful, and seemingly carefree could find themselves in such a place of darkness that they would end their own life.
