“We all desire to feel seen and understand ourselves and feel loved for who we are, even when we don’t know who we are. We want to find a space where we can come home to ourselves.” - Nikki Spo

“The struggle with my identity was so real. It is an empathy that I feel for anyone who knew they were different when they were born.”

“When I came to New York, I felt free. I felt like I could be whoever I wanted to be.”

“I met so many people who did not know anything about my background, and they got to know me for me. That really helped me get to know who I am.”
