I'm almost done with my school work from Winter semester, and ready to finish the Summer issue of Hip Mama-
Our theme is identity and I am finding this to be a richer topic by far than one magazine, but hey, I'll do what I can.
Anyone out there who wants to send me 200 words on Identity feel free,
tell me who you are- and how you choose what it is you tell people about yourself and whether or not you think they know you once you tell them-
What is our Identity?
Is it something we craft, discover, change, make-up.
What has changed in how you see yourself?
let me know-
