"I want to be an engineer."
"What advice would you give other engineers?"
"If you build a house that collapses, you’re going to get arrested. So you need to keep using the pendulum to make sure that everything is straight. Also, your cement mix has to be strong. You also need to be careful with the builders that you hire, or they will steal the cement from you.”
"What sort of building would you build?"
"A factory that makes new books, so that everyone can have new books for school. All of my books are old and have writing in them."

(Entebbe, Uganda)

I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve…I want woman to look stronger…I don’t like women to be taken advantage of…I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is … I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.

since I’ve come on home
well, my body’s been a mess
and I’ve missed your ginger hair
and the way you like to dress

Protect autistic people but especially autistic kids and especially especially autistic kids of colour because you know they will not be treated fairly and you know people will accuse them of disrespect when all they’re doing is trying to make sense of an interaction where someone is out to attack them for no apparent reason

Little backpacker Nora trekking along in Towalame Meadows some years ago… I haven’t backpacked Yosemite since then and I can’t wait to go back. I remember it really well because I was so happy during that trip!! I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was.
