Humans of CPS (3/21): Monique J.
“I value connection with others above everything else. That means that my favorite way to spend my time is talking to other people or doing activities with other people. So when I go to dance–and I considered leaving because it sucks sometimes–and I get to cuddle with my friends and dance with them and make something as a collective, it makes it worth it. Similarly, I just love driving with people. Like when I drive my sister to school it’s a really great time because we just get to chat and connect. And that’s a huge part of who I am; just talking to however many people I can and [forging] as many connections as I can.”
