I am smart, but my intelligence does not define me.

I am straight, but my sexuality does not define me.

I am male, but my gender does not define me.

I am white, but the color of my skin does not define me.

I am of Italian descent, but my cultural heritage does not define me.

I am a Catholic Christian, but my religious and spiritual beliefs do not define me.

I am a vegetarian, but my choice of foods and drink do not define me.

I am of sound mind and body, but my physical and psychological health does not define me.

I am a writer, producer, performer, and business executive, but my profession does not define me.

I am financially stable, but my economic status does not define me.

I am uniquely and intricately defined by my humanity.

My name is Human.
