Words to live by
It’s not about falling down. It’s about getting back up.
Your impact on the District
Whether it is design, fashion or music, I love being able to create. More importantly, I love being able to share those creations and contribute to my community.
How D.C. supports the LGBTQ+ community
The District is a one-of-kind melting pot of people from around the world. I think that helps people to really appreciate and be open to diversity in any form.
What the city can improve upon
I think the city could invest more to support LGBTQ+ nonprofits, especially the organizations doing outreach to the most vulnerable members of our community. We all have to be in this together.
What you’re looking forward to most this summer
I miss seeing the community come together, especially around music and dancing. It always reminds me of what a beautifully diverse city we live in.
