Trust in your struggle…

After the disowning from my family, friends and home country for being LGBTQI+. I was left disconnected and forced to leave everything behind to find a new life abroad.

Struggling to support myself and create a new life, had me work harder than ever had before however I often missed out on opportunities due to my differences and connection to LGBTQI+ community. At the time it felt like the world was becoming a darker place and with no escape. I became very lost and often unsure if I even wanted to be found again.

Until it happened, I was fortunate to be found by Pinnacle Foundation. They had reignited the spark within myself that had been gone for so long. Affording me the opportunity to live a authentic life and proud member of the LGBTQI+ community.
