“I have lost a lot and I have a lot of weaknesses, but I use them as my strengths as well. My brother is gay and he’s currently suffering with depression. He attempted suicide. This is one of my difficulties. I see life as being so beautiful, and all of a sudden my brother has a problem which he cannot cope with.

He lives in the Philippines and I live in London, so it is really difficult for me to communicate with him in person and be there to support him. We are really close it’s like we’re a part of one another.”
