New York is the city that woke me from my slumber. The city that taught me to embrace difference and the unfamiliar.
Chicago is the city that tested me. The city that taught me merely embracing difference is not enough. We must commit to understanding, to the very best of our ability, what it is to be seen as different.
New York taught me how to speak up and be heard.
Chicago taught me how to shut up and listen.
