“IDENTITY?" Our communities have a way of shaping us. At times, we try with all our strength to push away the limitations forced upon us by our surroundings; sometimes we forget the cause that we were struggling to attain in the first place because our surroundings disapprove of the way we trek it; other times, we thrive and shake off any antagonistic concept or vile disruption of our paths by sliding through the obstacles and as a result filling dents in the question mark that is our existence.
