How do you think others see you?
When I was younger, how I think others saw me was sometimes how I see myself. Now, I think others see me in a negative light — that I have nothing to offer, especially in the United States. In Europe, people seem to be looking more for connectivity, for a common bond.
How do you see yourself?
A lot. It varies. It has to do with my mood and current environment. It shifts dramatically depending on how people treat me. I like to consider myself as an intellectual in a very positive light, with a good sense of self-worth.
How do you want to be seen?
I don’t want to be looked down upon because of orientation or socio-economic status or intellectual awareness. Equality above all.
