Our summer student in Vaudreuil-Soulanges “Who am I?” | VIVA MÉDIA Skip to main content

Who am I? That is a question that can be asked in many ways both by ourselves and others. I have always dreaded answering questions such as “how would you describe yourself” and “how do you think others perceive you?”

I honestly do not know the answer I would give because it would change every time. People are not constant variables; they change over time, just like our phones need updating to keep functioning properly.

Today, I can answer that question with enough confidence as to not have my answer questioned.

I am happy, content, and fulfilled with who I am physically and psychologically today, but it has taken me a long time to get here (i.e., 7 years). I always thought that I had to change who I was and the thoughts that I had because I felt so different and alienated from my peers. It took years of therapy and devoted groups in my community for me to realize that my negative thoughts do not control me but are put aside and I’ve learned to stop caring what others think of me.

So, who am I then?

“I am me, which is more than I was before”. That is all that matters to me and all that should matter. All I care about is that “I am enough” for me.

I have been searching for an organization that would be a good fit for me, and so I am happy to have the opportunity to work for MWCN – Montérégie West Community Network since it is an organization determined and focused towards helping people connect with their community, get access to the seminars on various topics such as mental health and vision care, and, simply getting people outside of their homes for a couple of hours a day. When I see one of our members smiling, I cannot help but feel fulfilled from everything we do at MWCN.
