I’ve always been a private person. I’ve never been afraid to share my intimate details but I wanted it to be with people I trust. It also had to be in the right moments.
In my previous article, I reflected on the hard choices I’ve made in my 30 years.

I grew up playing video games.
At 3 years old, I was leaping chasms on Atari’s Pitfall and crushing goombas as Super Mario on the Nintendo.
