what has been the best part of your journey?
The best part for me is how I feel, like a completely new and happy person, finally doing and saying the things I've always wanted to do and say. I feel more myself than I have ever been in my entire life.
My nanna is an old Greek woman who, whilst loving my brother and I unconditionally, has never been keen on our tattoos and my piercings. I didn't know how she'd react to my having dreads and for a long time she was one of the main reasons I didn't start them. The most beautiful part of my journey so far, was when I was leaving her house the other day after a visit and she grabbed hold of my messy, unkempt, matted up, decorated locks, kissed my head and said "I love your hair and I love you"
