Within a generation that doesn't see the power in softness but hardens to protect itself instead I want to inspire young people to show their vulnerable sides and imperfections that are so often covered under expectations and self-branding within our social world these days. Surrounded by perfection that leaves no room for weaknesses we have started building theses huge walls of protection around ourselves.
But what are we so afraid of? Why is it so hard to be honest and emotionally vulnerable?
This question evoked a sense of responsibility inside me to promote the idea of openness and transparency among young people and lead me to the journey of searching for inspiring souls and open hearts reflecting about their lives and struggles growing up in this generation. I want to bring an unfiltered and honest insight into young peoples minds and share their thoughts and insecurities. Because the truth is we all carry them in one way or another and the moment we reveal and talk about those "weaknesses" I believe they automatically transform into our biggest strength.
So instead of building these huge walls around ourselves, we should start to embrace those weaknesses, connect and listen to each other stories and create an environment that is conducive to the growth of ourselves and the people around us.

"Ich habe, was mich angeht keine Lust mehr auf Versteckspiel. Ich bin wer ich bin, was nicht heißt, dass ich mittlerweile weiß wer ich bin oder wie weit ich noch gehen werde, doch Schritte zurück wird es bei mir nicht geben."

unafraid of painting honest pictures
speaking honest words
as they piece themselves together.
crushing heavy walls of expectations
freeing their souls
ready to unravel
ready to spread wings.
