"Something I've struggled with is not being "enough." I've felt like I wasn't Asian "enough" or Filipino "enough" or American "enough." It was quite a big eye-opener moving to NYC and meeting people from all over who have felt the same entrapment between multiple worlds. I realized that once you begin to find out who you are and accept that your identity can be as fluid as you are comfortable with, that's more than enough. Being comfortable with myself has helped me transcend stereotypes on my own terms. My favorite photos are ones that capture the mood and vulnerability of the moment. In these, I felt quite comfortable just simply being myself. Photos like these are what I want to show my nieces and nephews because they can know that being comfortable in your own skin is the ultimate goal of growing up. And for the most part, I think I've finally achieved that."
