I learned a thing or two about myself, but even more about others. I have become more aware of my own privileges, my responsibilities towards life on earth by acknowledging the past and working towards a future with more equality, respect and understanding for each other. And that's why it's taken me a while to write this article. Mainly because I feel it's not my time and place to speak up, this is not about me and the world doesn't need another privileged white girl's opinion. Besides that, I am scared of speaking up, being vulnerable and saying the wrong things for the wrong reasons without context or nuance, but with good intentions. And that's why I am writing this article anyway.
