What's on your mind?

I’m having a lot of issues with connecting with my junior high school basketball team. Being the only queer girl makes me feel isolated and I can’t relate to everyone else, how do I feel less alone?

Hey,

Remember that your uniqueness is your strength, don’t hide it! Opening up to the people in our lives can lead to deeper bonds, and even if you feel like you can’t relate to your teammates, there are so many other parts of our lives that we have in common with each other that we just don’t know about yet. Just keep being yourself, and know that your presence is important and can and will inspire others. Who we are is a superpower, and should never be something to be ashamed of. It lets us shine.

Together, always,
Breanna Stewart
