And if so, how do your friends and family feel about it? Do they disagree with your choices?

State your name, where you live and what you do for a living
Tell us about the choices you have made in your life: ones that you are proud of and ones that are different than what your family or friends think you should have made. I.E, not marrying or deciding to not have children or having a non “traditional” relationship.
Tell us about how your family and friends live and what their opinions are about your personal choices. Where does your relationship stand with them now? Have they accepted your lifestyle or do they still struggle to understand it?
HOW TO MAKE VIDEO:
Please keep video to under 3 minutes long
If you use your iPhone to tape the scene, please make sure to shoot it HORIZONTALLY (not vertically).
Please make sure to set up the camera so it is facing you and speak directly into it to tell your story.
Find a quiet, well-lit space.
When you record the scene, you should be natural and honest. Think of it as a conversation, not an interview or acting.
You can send to us via: dropbox.com (share with the email [email protected] as that’s the email we have associated with our dropbox account) or wetransfer.com or email or any other video platform that works for you.
In the body of your email please tell us your full name, email, phone # and your instagram (if you have one). Please include 2 natural photos (nothing stylized, with little to no makeup).
