The ‘KEYS’ to Revealing Me


“For as long as I can remember, I’ve hidden myself.

I remember feeling like my friends would make fun of me or look at me as if I was different from them and so… I started hiding. Not intentionally, I didn’t mean to, but I did. Little pieces at a time.” - AK Through the lenses of the mundane 9 to 5 and managing recurrent bills, celebrities have the life.
