No Apoleogies is a very personal and meaningful idea for me. I’ve lived most of my life in hiding for a lot of the same reasons most people start to lose themselves, some of them sad, some of them stupid, and none of them worth the cost to my spirit. The little girl who wanted to sing and dance and act nearly disappeared completely behind the mask of a perfectly nice woman with no voice.

But the seemingly insignificant moment of my first clumsy spin around a pole offered something I hadn’t experienced in a long time:  Joy.  Allowing myself to experience being in my body and enjoying it for the first time in a long time changed everything.

I’m hoping this will be a space for self-expression and support and that by sharing my own journey I might be able to help someone else take the first step toward finding their voice.
