Belonging Outside the Lines: An Autoethnography Open Access Deposited

The following entries occur throughout different locales and at different points in time. As both storytelling and critical reflection, these slices of my experience flag some of the influential moments in the shaping of my own personhood. I am who I am today as a result of a dialogic lived experience between myself and the rest of the world. There are times when strangers will label me, and mark me out in ways that fit their neatly constructed identity boxes. But life is not simply letting the world tell you who you are, it is how you answer. At the core of this work, of my life, is a story of belonging: times when I felt out of place, and times when I have found my place.
