I applied for the award because I was honestly proud of how far I’ve come in accepting myself as a queer person. I can’t say I’ve completely overcome the shame and internalized homophobia, but one day I will. I’ll remember the quiet, hesitant and very queer high school student at war with herself, and congratulate myself on having made it this far. My plans for the future are to continue my studies in English and Creative Writing at Concordia University.
