“I grew up in a very diverse community. I grew up as a Baha’i, which is extremely diverse and celebrates diversity. I also grew up as a white person in a predominantly African American community, so I really was around different cultures my entire life. And it didn’t make me feel like a little loner, like I don’t belong, where do I fit in? But I grew up with the ideology that we are all one, and that our differences just make us more of a beautiful garden. And so that’s really the foundation of who I am as a person.”
