It was a hot day of course.
When was it not?
And it was a home meet.
Us girls were setting up our blocks and test running over the hurdles a few times when suddenly the Official called out loudly-
That which makes me who I am is not in a name. Dominique is a part of me but it does not define me.
Nor am I defined by the labels society wants me to conform to.
