It’s serendipitous to read something that is exactly what you needed to hear; thank you for writing this

I’ve read this over and over in bits for the past few days. This experience. Belonging and not belonging is a thing I seem to meet over and over again.

Another one of your beautiful reads! There's so much intelligence, nuance and crisp articulation - yet it never gets heavy! Wonderful, loved it. Thank you for writing and sharing :) 🌻🌸

I used to feel really bad about myself in high school and it wasn’t until I got to college when I found myself surrounded by different and more optimistic people that I began to start thinking more highly of myself. I didn’t make the connection between this improvement and the people I was surrounded by until I read your piece.

So happy to see Baldwin here! I host a book club in India and Giovanni’s Room is our pick for the month. We are a group of more than 20 people who are reading the same book, I am just 30 pages in and already a fan!
