Though this was taken four years ago, it remains an accurate representation of what I look like – without makeup, just out of the shower, scrubbed and presented plain. A scar above my lip, redness on my chin, blue eyes, brown hair, that fine line, those freckles, pink lips, circles, hair, skin.

But this is not all of me. I am a shape-changer. And though this is me without makeup, it is hardly the truth.

The truth is what I create.
