I am Jody and IAM4FREEDOM! I've never felt more free than I'm feeling right now. To get so much love and positive feedback for just being yourself is kind of crazy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I would recommend it to anyone. I am a transgender girl and I am very proud of that. In this world it's not easy to be different, especially when it isn't a choice to be different but it's just how you're born. This is who I am and I've learned to be proud of myself.
Freedom is not having to live according to the standard..
That it’s ok to step outside the lines. Or stay within if I want to.
Freedom is dressing up sexy when I feel like it. Without disapproving or dirty looks from others.
Freedom for me is the right to choose what I do, where, when and with whom and that others have that exact same right.
Freedom is being respected. And giving back even if it’s not necessarily my savoir vivre.
Freedom is living in a society free of religious dogma’s and imposed religious laws.
Freedom is stepping under a waterfall when you see one.
I am Marjolein and IAM4FREEDOM! To me freedom means that you can live your own life. You make your own decisions and choices and no one can control your life for you. No one makes your decisions for you. Every moment and every single day. But it also means that you have to live with the consequences of the choices that you make, whether they are good or bad. Yes, I can live my own life and make my own choices. I can raise my kids the way I want to, and surround myself with people who I love. It means I can live where I want to and do the work I like to do. I do not have to ask anyone for permission to do these things. Because of all these freedoms, I'm grateful to live and be able to live my own life the way I want, as happy as I can. Sometimes we take freedom for granted and don't think of all the little things that we get to enjoy because we are free. When you stop and think about how different life would be without it, it makes you very thankful to live here and enjoy the promise of freedom.
Among other things, the measurable motivation behind ALL4FREEDOM, is the IAM4FREEDOM Hero community and counters can indicate the involvement, the reach/range and the success of the ALL4FREEDOM projects and actions. As a core and key element, it is a conscious choice to communicate this community counter clearly, prominently and openly via all channels. Thus inspiring more (potential) IAM4FREEDOM Heroes, FREE PEOPLE REPRESENTATIVES and NON FREE PEOPLE REPRESENTATIVES to stick to their previous promises and proposals. As the community is still in beta-phase
, we will not display the statistics here until we have it all tested and up and running. So, thanks a thousand for your understanding and patience...
