KENZIE BRENNA

Activist and Actor

Audio Transcription:

Something that I’ve had to overcome is my insecurity with getting dressed. I’ve never felt confident until the last few years to be able to wear what I’ve wanted to wear because I felt like my body held me back from that. And so that’s been something to get over, knowing that I wear the clothes, the clothes don’t wear me. That’s something I’ve been empowered by, just saying ‘This is my body. I’m not getting rid of my body. I’m not erasing myself. I’m going to wear clothes that make me feel really good, that make excited.’ I don’t think that you have to be trendy, I don’t think you have to own certain clothes to be beautiful. Being part of nature… I think being part of the cosmos, being part of just the human experience is just so deeply beautiful in and of itself. No one has been through what you’ve been through, and that to me makes you so different. You don’t have to look very hard to find peoples beauty in that way.
