Hello, I'm Captain Nina, the inventor of the movement Environmentalistic fashion (EF), the name is not important- it could be anything. The important thing is the goal: to end all suffering, to achieve peace on Earth, to use EF to support science and various charities, so that those who have fallen behind can get an education, so that plant species and animal species that are now threatened can be allowed to develop for thousands, upon thousands of years. For the collective focus of the human race to broaden so that energy that is now lost could be directed in a more useful way. In order to achieve a prolonged life in "paradise" on Earth, or in other words Utopia.
Through EF I am presenting a way to be anything you want to be, because EF can be applied to any lifestyle and not just a lifestyle that includes a desire to follow what's in fashion or to look stylish. The movement needed a symbol and I decided on a butterfly before soon realizing what a feminine symbol I'd picked out. So I changd it to a robot butterfly. A butterfly with wings of steal from the future we’re fighting for. I chose the butterfly because it's a fragile creature that goes through an almost magical change. From a little larvae and into a beautiful butterfly. Think of how fast things sped up after The Industrial Revolution? Or after the Internet was invented? We can achieve that same burst of development if EF became just as popular as high end labels, as Britney Spears in the year 2000 or as Coca Cola for example. There is power in numbers. That's the concept anyway.
If you could choose between having everything you ever wanted while hurting others or between having everything you ever wanted while helping others, which would you rather choose? The most important thing is for the collective focus of the human race to broaden. However, we can also save money by getting more of our possessions secondhand and we can donate that money to different charities such as the International Red Cross, WWF, science or any other charity. That's where EF might differ from just environmentally friendly fashion and vintage shopping or a charity where one is simply encouraged to share from ones income. The part where we actively donate money to achieve our goals, money that can be saved through secondhand shopping or through taking better care of our resources. Through going "fuck fashion!" (if we want to) and through being confident enough to choose the sturdy table that will last us a lifetime in stead of going through many tables in order to impress our friends and so on and so on. By being mindful of our priorities and our choices. Not out of the kindness of our hearts, but because our ultimate goal is more desireable. Immortality & Utopia.
Whatever you buy secondhand is up to you, but it could be anything, because there is just such a mass of stuff out there now. You could get a car, a computer, clothes, furniture or almost anything else secondhand or vintage. We don't have to follow what's in fashion, but we can if we want to and we can still apply EF to that lifestyle. If we don't follow what's in fashion we're in an even better position to take better care of our possessions. That's the third important thing that we can do. Let's take the example of choosing a table that's sturdy. It might last us a lifetime and we can choose to be more aware of these details. Our homes can be comfortable, but there should also be a limit to how much comfort we need before we stop adding to it and start to share with those who are suffering. Because the need for those who are suffering is acute.
I will protect planet Earth, my home. I will fight for it. Many people don't believe in the climate crisis and that is irrelevant because we are losing plant species and animal species. The ocean and nature is full of plastic and that's our responsibility. We should appreaciate our possessions more like my grandparents used to do when they were young. The things that I buy secondhand, they’re not garbage, but treasure. I might even find Chanel or Armani- vintage. Or with the pricetag still on.
Furthermore, just to take an example, how we begin our day can have an impact on how we feel for the rest of the day and if we've developed some bad habits that can actually impact our entire lives. Our habits matter whether they’re our morning habits or habits that we go through at any given moment. First things first, actually getting out of bed at a decent time, getting enough sleep and taking care of our general health, all of these things of course very important, but then what?
My impression is that a lot of people jump straight to social media to keep themselves up to date and while apps such as Instagram offer aesthetic beauty and sometimes even art, spending too much time obsessing over these impressions is destructive because it doesn't offer enough substance. It doesn't offer any new source of information. In todays society all kinds of impressions, information, knowledge and bullshit lies available to us at the flick of a switch or the press of a button. This should be a good thing. If all the knowledge we need is constantly available to us we should be very intelligent by now, but we're slowly starting to forget that achieving something that's truly good doesn't always come for free.
Just looking at pretty pictures doesn't demand any effort from us. It's easy, but reading about something scientific might demand a little bit more concentration and so humans are often shifting their focus over to entertainment that doesn't demand anything at all. Also, this next point is very important, we’re forgetting to be critical. Even when following the news or reading a scientific article it’s important to stay critical. Journalists want to sell their story and they might exaggerate or even lie either to reach a larger audience or simply because they don’t know any better. The average human is too naive. Many are forgetting even about democracy and that in each individual lies not only a responsibility to help shape the world, but to understand in which direction we're actually taking it. Through every opinion, choice and action there follows a consequence. Do people understand the actual consequence of these opinions or are they basing their decisions on false assumptions?
Back in the day influencers would talk about how they liked to begin their day, it was effortless and shallow, though they did encourage a healthy lifestyle. My guide to a happy morning isn't going to demand tons of effort from you, but it's going to be productive in stead of destructive. It's probably going to make you feel happy. So, in stead of Instagram I’m just going to share some alternatives with you and they’re not perfect either, but it could pinpoint you in a better direction. This is my favourite thread, it's so simple to scroll through, just like an Instagram feed. It's like a science feed, with different posts with news relating to physics, biology, pshychology, neuroscience, economy, social science, engeneering, health, medicine and so on. It's so easy to understand all the posts, you don't have to understand physics, mathematics or anything like that on an academic level to understand this and if something catches your interest and you want to read more about it you can press on the post. Just og to Reddit and then og to the science thread at
There's also an app for this, so you can literally scroll through this just like you would scroll through an Instagram feed, but that’s just one example. The point is that all of these people are working every day to try and guide our planet toward Utopia and the avarage citizen can either help out, by taking just a moment to paint a picture in order to be supportive or, ignorantly, keep holding us back.
Another thing you can do is to follow the news. Being an adult without understanding your countries different political parties enough in order to deliver a vote properly is absolutely abhorrent and I'm afraid it’s quite common. Because basing a vote on an impression is not enough unless the impression is correct. It’s not necessary to own a television to stay up to date, I never watch television. I stopped watching television about seven years ago because anything that wasn't news-related was turning more and more stupid and even repugnant. I filled the empty space with literature for a long time, before slowly coming to realize that I could actually fill that empty leisure space with knowledge and not just such things as fictional literature or art. Literature makes me feel comforted, it's pleasant and safe, but by reading nothing else I wouldn’t be properly stimulated. The pursuit of knowledge is rewarding in a wholesome way. Following the news can make anyone feel upset and even frightened at times, but shutting our eyes to cruelty is cruel. Keeping up to date is our responsibility and trying is the least we can do. Podcasts are a good alternative. Like the BBC Global News Podcast or Dagsnytt 18 if you’re living in Norway. There are many educational podcasts as well. I know it's basic, but I'll also mention that if you live in Norway and you don't own a television either, that watching NRK TV through a laptop for example is a good alternative. There are even channels devoted entirely to politics.
Many of us will find these things a little bit demanding, following the news and working to understand politics properly, but the pursuit of knowledge in general really can be a lot of fun! School is one thing, but in our spare time our learning is in our own hands. We can begin at exactly the point where we’re located intellectually. With any subject we can possibly desire. School is different, you're expected to keep up and when you’re young you have to learn about subjects that have been decided before you. We're all different, so of course that's bound to present a challenge. There’s never any shame in not being able to understand some kind of fact, the shame lies in not attempting to understand it. I'm never going to be a mathematician, that doesn't mean I can't go back to some point in my education and learn a simple math problem, read an article about science or read about human history, philosophy or any other subject that might interest me. I can go back to the level of a second grade student if I have to and build my way up. Read information that's been simplified so as to enable avarage people to understand it, as with the Reddit thread or some science magazines. Wikipedia, the library, youtube, the internet in general, it's all there. Just remember to be critical of your sources. I repeat, be critical of your sources. Nature is a good science magazine btw.
Anyway, what is cool? I think that EF is cool. I want to live forever, I want immortality and I believe there's a good chance that we could achieve a prolonged life during my lifetime through science, because scientists are already working on it and because we've already achieved so many wonderful inventions through human history. If the collective focus of the human race could broaden and many people suddenly started donating more money to science and other charities. We are able to, if we limit our greed. Or in other words, re-direct it. At least in my case, because selfishly, quite selfishly, although I care for those who are suffering and for my home, my major reason for doing this is that I don't want to die. How can you doubt that motive? It is at the very core of my being. It is my instinct. I want to live! I want to be an angel. That is, I want to dress up as one, in a world where nobody would ever have to be afraid. To a lot of us, there is no fight for survival anymore, so I decided that our time is here.
I grew up in clothes from the thrift shop, hand-me-downs or clothes that came from the attic in the north where I'm from. However, I think I always loved that other world, that world full of glamour. It's not because I care what other people think of me, because I don't. Not in that way, but clothes from labels such as Armani or Ralph Lauren are in better quality than most of the clothes from mainstream stores. Sometimes I think I hate H&M because when I walk inside the store I struggle to find a single item that isn’t tacky and sometimes it's not even tacky because of the design, it's tacky because of the choice of fabric or because of how it's been made. I can always find basic things such as socks or cotton t-shirts, but finding something else, something I will be able to keep for years to come... It isn’t easy.
I'm an environmentalist. I care about the environment and believe it or not, but if you love shopping as much as I do, that doesn't have to be a bad thing for the planet. The garments at Steen & Strøm, a very posh mall here in Norway, are in the price range of 200$, 300$, 400$ or maybe 150$ if it's on sale. That might seem like a lot, but the fabrics and the way these pieces are executed means that if you buy a piece of clothing from Steen & Strøm you might wind up hanging onto that piece for many years to come. Because it’s in really good quality. I found the most exquisite real silk skirt for only 150$ once and I'm sure I could have kept that skirt for the rest of my life. Now, if one walks into a store like H&M one might wind up spending 100$ quite easily! I mean, a jacket could cost 50 or even 60$ and you might think it a bargain, but it's in polyester, the seams are badly executed and many, many other people have that same jacket. Then maybe you'll get a top for say 20$? Plus a skirt for 30$, but the skirt is tacky. You already spent 100$ on clothes that look tacky and chances are, you’ll get bored with it.
I realize that to a lot of people H&M is a good alternative. There are many people who wouldn’t be able to go clothes shopping at all if it wasn’t for places like this, but there is another alternative. There is a silver lining in the middle here and that’s what I want to discuss. How Armani is for everyone and how even a low-class girl can learn how to follow what was in fashion without wasting either money or resources.
Maybe this is just me being me, but growing up, I would prefer to go to thrift stores for one thing, the good ones, where you might actually find Ralph Lauren or Louis Vuitton and I would look for pieces that were in good quality.
Because I realized that if I went shopping somewhere mainstream, I'd often wind up with a closet full of crap that I'd never even want to put on. That's a waste. It's a waste of money and also of the planet. To understand that I could spend the same amount of money on clothes during a year, getting only a few basic pieces from a good label and feel better when getting dressed in the morning took me a long time to come to terms with. It took me a long time because I grew up with a mindset of not belonging to that world of glamour and intimidating labels such as Chanel, but I have the same right as anyone else to walk into Armani and try on a dress. Of course, it's a choice. We are all free to make our own choices and I choose to be clever. I understand that if I learn what my personal style really involves and then put some real thought into those few key pieces, that I could be glamorous and still stay in tune with my own personal values. In other words, less is more. I started to ask myself questions like. Maybe I do belong in the Steen & Strøm mall and not in some other, worse mall? Maybe I can define myself and fit in anywhere I want to be? Maybe Armani is for everyone?
In Asia, it's more common to think in this way. They'll bring their clothes to the tailor if there's a hole in it, because their clothes are fine. I’d do that too, or I’d just fix it myself and I'm proud of that! I’m not ashamed. What's bad, is to throw away clothes from for example H&M because there's no real relationship toward that piece of clothing, because it cost so little, because it’s just a thin piece of cotton with a simple seam. So that when there's a hole in it, it's just trash. One ugly t-shirt might not seem like much of a wasted resource, but several tons of clothing are going to waste constantly. It might seem like any personal effort like recycling your own garbage at home is insignificant against the situation at large, but that's still not a good enough argument. You wouldn't throw away a pair of jeans by Ralph Lauren if there was a hole in it, because it's a good pair of jeans. We're all different, some people don't care about clothes at all, nevertheless I find this whole idea of being OK with owning less to be of importance. The idea that this can in fact be cool, because what's more cool than doing something good? Than being so comfortable and confident in your own skin that you don't feel the need to fit in? To follow what's in fashion or to constantly strive to reach some kind of ideal, when our rolemodels might be bad rolemodels and the collective ideas of what's right, might be wrong?
I’m offering an alternative view on the whole fashion industry in an attempt to stop global warming among other things. There is only one planet Earth and we are loosing animal species and plants species that are irreplaceable. How important is it really to fit in? Do we even need the fashion industry at all? Could many of us make do, with less? They say that we, the consumers, are the ones creating the fashion because the fashion industry is producing whatever they hope will be the most appealing to us as a whole. Maybe I can make up my own mind? I want to add that the same mindset applies to interior design. Getting antique furniture secondhand will look stunning and getting something from IKEA will cost the same or maybe even more, but you will not be unique and you will have wasted a resource from the planet. Go for quality over quantity. Take care of your belongings. Be mindful about your choices. We have to wear clothes and we have to have furniture, but we don't have to be idiots about it. My wallet is by Marc by Marc Jacobs, I got it secondhand and it's in real leather. It cost me 70$, a bit of a splurge to be honest. Some girl was bored with it, but I'm not. If I ever get rich, this side of me won't change. I would decorate my house in vintage pieces and it would look magical. It's a choice and choices lead to consequences.
The reason why I like labels such as Chanel, Armani or Karl Lagerfeld is because the fabric, the execution and the detailing of the items are more often than not in good quality. Likewise an item that I buy secondhand may also be in good quality. I might even find Chanel, Armani or Karl Lagerfeld vintage. If I removed the print on the bottle of my conditioner I wouldn't know what it contained. I would have to smell it, touch it and try it out on my hair to figure out whether or not it's a good conditioner. The same rule should always apply to fashion. A label can't tell you whether or not a piece of clothing is in good quality. Maybe Virginie Viard made a mistake one day and directed for an entire stock of sweaters to be made entirely from cactus thorns. You wouldn't know that unless you took a closer look at the sweater in question. If you touched it. Different materials matter a great deal if you want to look expensive, as do the seams, the buttons and any other detailing.
Simplicity is the way to go if you're short on cash and you're in a mainstream store. Go for cotton and simple design, but if you're shopping online or from a thrift store, your options improve. On the internet you can find items from high end labels with the pricetag still on. Personally I don't care whether an item has been used before me or not because I know that cleaning it will make it... Clean, but buying new stuff secondhand online is an option and you'll save a lot of money that way. Money you can share with a charity like the International Red Cross for example. There are good thrift stores and bad ones, the bad ones can be a bit dull, but the really good ones are like a gold mine. We should never feel ashamed to go shopping in a thrift store, we should remain strong within ourselves and feel proud. Look for pieces in good quality. Touch the different fabrics, look at the seams, the buttons. Are they unique? Are they in good quality? Are they cool?
What is cool? Only you can decide that. Or can you? How much are you influenced by other people, by society or by the world in general? People are different. Some people care a lot about what other people think of them and others don't. Some people are more confident than others. Some people are good at mathematics, while others enjoy writing. Just as every person is different, everything that we surround ourselves with is also unique. Not just material things either, but words, concepts or rules might also contain a whole range of different qualities and how many of those qualities are actually real? Did you check? Are all dining room tables solid? What defines a dining room table? Do you know? We have to accept that some things are real without checking because it would take too long to check that every single table in the world is solid, for example. However, I believe that many of us take too much for granted. Particularly when the majority of the human race is in agreement, but to be fair. The human race's collective opinion has been mistaken plenty of times before!
We accept the world as it is and we might wish that it were different, but we accept that it's impossible to change it. After all, the world has been the same way for such a long time and we are so small and it is so large and then there's the fact that there are so many of us, but just because something is in one specific way, does not mean that it cannot alter and become different. If we give up. If we accept reality without question, without a doubt and without any implications...
Think of it this way. We can change now or we can chage later on because during the stone age people moved in different directions, some people stuck to hunting and gathering for thousands of years while another group of people discovered how they could sow and harvest wheat and barley and developed immensley because of it. These different groups of humans clashed many, many years later on and we moved on to the world we know today. Just as the poor countries in the third world are still very much living under the conditions of the past, so can we move at a short or a quick pace toward Utopia.
Sometimes it can be fun to disagree. The words "I disagree" can feel downright liberating. You don't even have to mean it, you can just play around with it for fun, try it out on different statements as if it's a hat. "Water is wet". "Why, I disagree!" See? It's a blast! Then, suddenly, you might come across something unexpected. You realize that despite believing the opposite, you were actually right and disagreeing to whatever it was that you were disagreeing to turned out to be the correct answer to the statement. You could go the other way around and agree to a load of stuff too, but that might get a bit slippery.
Many people say that a world of peace, where we all share, where everyone is allowed an education, medical health and safety is an unachievable goal within our lifetime and I disagree.
I reckon science on a high level must be incredibly rewarding and I wish I understood more of it and I don't, but I can still imagine what the world would be like if we all lived in peace and there was more room to dig deeper into all the stuff that's ACTUALLY good.
What is cool? What is really, really, really cool? So cool that you get turned on or high on it? Because I have felt that, I swear and the answer is that you need to dig deeper. Figure out what's ACTUALLY cool, interesting or inspiring. To a lot of people I think it could be more than what it is. I'm not religious and I don't mean charity. I don't mean anything, I'm not fishing for one answer in particular right now, I'm simply asking a question and I want the real answer. Not the answer that I want, but whatever is utterly true. What is cool? The coolest? I'm asking because I want people to ask themselves that question and to dig to the very core of the answer because only then can it be turned into reality. At least, if you use your imagination. Don't even think moral, just be free with it, it's a trip. To invent something it must always first be invented with our imagination, within our minds eye, only then can we put our idea into reality. Who knows? Maybe your idea of "cool" could be turned into reality? In stead of what's in fashion, unless the fashion is actually cool.
What if a lot of people suddenly started helping those in need with basics such as an education? Including charities such as WWF. How many years would it take for the global situation to improve? Think of it this way...
Imagine the entire human race as one young man named "Earth". Earth is one person with one wallet and right now Earth is struggling to pay the rent because Earth doesn't have his priorities sorted out right. If Earth realized that Earth needs to deal with the most acute bills first, before Earth can go and buy treats, then Earth would be able to pay the rent AND get to stay in his apartment. Earth really wants to buy those treats, it's become a bad habit.
Now, Earth might not get kicked out of his apartment either way, because he'll just call up his mom and ask for money, but his situation is still really lame and he's not as happy as he could have been. His mom is angry with him because he's always asking for money and there's more, he's bought a lot of stuff through Klarna and the debth is bugging him. He's ashamed of it, he wants things to be different, he's just procrastinating. Those treats sound so good! Earth needs to sort out his life, he needs to say no to the treats, at least some of them and actually pay the worst of the bills. Only then can he complete his studies and get a real life, with a real job. A rewarding one that would make him feel mature and happy. One that would secure his future for all of time.
I believe that two of the road blocks that we're facing are: fear and: the fact that we want to belong to the herd and right now the herd doesn't belive that things can change "overnight", but it's OK to disagree. It's OK to be strong within ourselves. It's OK to voice outloud our belifs, our likes and our dislikes. I repeat, you can still read Vogue if you want to, or something similar, you can still have a nice and comfortable home, but there should be a limit to it. There should be a limit to how much comfort and riches we actually need before it's enough. Because even if someone is a billionaire, able to share more than others, the need for those who are suffering is acute. My personal opinion is that those differences should be evened out (not literally overnight because I don't think that people could handle it) but through EF. Through changing our collective focus, through asking ourselves questions, through making some changes in our daily lives. How big does a home really need to be? Maybe it could still be big, but not quite as big? Maybe that would still feel OK? Maybe two new dresses in stead of three would be enough? Maybe it would be possible to get a new tabletsecondhand, still unwrapped, if it's only going to be used to take notes during lessons in school? It's possible to save a lot of money that way, but not everyone would go there, would consider it as an option.
It is an option and no one sitting next to this person during a lesson would know that the tablet was bought secondhand. You can literally get almost anything secondhand now because there is just such a mass of stuff out there. Maybe because people buy something, then get bored with it, maybe it didn't quite fit as it was meant to or maybe it was out of fashion. The point is that it's still in good condition, but they don't want it so then it's... is it trash?
Because what defines trash? Is my pencil trash if I throw it on the floor? Is it trash if there's ketchup smeared on it? Is it trash if I use it first and then put it down? Is it trash if it's not in fashion anymore? Is it trash if it's useless?
The things I buy secondhand are beautiful. Unique. I clean them and admire them. I cherish them. If there's a hole in a jacket I mend it. I love Chanel, but I don't love every single item that's ever been designed for Chanel. I like cotton and I dislike whool. I'm scared of the dark and sex is my favourite past-time. I think I'm pretty sure of who I am, but I still ask myself questions all the time. We should all ask ourselves questions. If all our answers are true and genuine, then that's it, but if not... Digging out the real truth can take time, but it's well worth the journey. Figuring out the purpose or goal behind every opinion or action can lead to a more rewarding life. It might encourage us to take ownership of our actions in a different way and help us to understand that our ideas can come true both within our imagination and in reality.
I believe that I could be a good rolemodel, but I'm just a mascot if anything. All I can do is to try and show people in my own unique way that we won't become poorer by using EF to share. That it will make us feel amazing and that we can still look like Barbie dolls or rockstars. I want the power to inspire- not to rule and I see this as my purpose. Because these goals are all I've ever wanted really, ever since I was a very small girl and I stared to question the world. Success might be unlikely, but if I give myself over to this cause entirely I might make the world a better place. So I will never give up. Not until every human that is suffering is free. Not until all of nature is in balance once more. Not until every animal is safe from mankind. I am not afraid to state freely that I am even now attempting to make it as a star, because if I did, it's much more likely that I'll succeed. So I'm not afraid to be observed as I too stumble and fall as we all got both light and darkness within us. I do. I am capable of evil, but I chose the light.
I wanted to be a child forever. As a child, my greatest desire was to remain in the north of Norway where I was born, just that. To stay there, in the summer and to carry on running around, wild and free in the beautiful nature that surrounded my then happy family. Right by the ocean and an idyllic little farm that's still run by my uncle. I want to protect it, but I couldn't remain a child forever. I can only hold on to her greatest desire.
I define myself and I'm not afraid of failioure. I'm not afraid to stand out and I realized that I could use that as a weapon. Everything I've ever stated since I invented EF has been based on common sense and simple facts and it's up to my followers to decide whether or not they want to copy my inspirational content. I'm different, but that's a good thing. I'm not asking for us to let go entirely of our need to belong to the herd. I can't even do that and nor should I. We, the human race, should be a team. A team where different ideas, opinions and levels of taste should be heard and in many ways the world is already like that. Some things within this world as it is right now, it is good and some things are bad and removing everything that's bad might neither be possible nor right, but there could be a better balance. All of this, is obviously my opinion and yours might differ and at the end of the day our world might already be moving in this direction without any help from me. Because there are less people on Earth suffering today than there has ever been before in human history. However, I believe that we've reached a point, where this progress could speed up even more. If those who are able to would engage more into this movement, or something similar. All you have to do is take a good look at human history, but I'm getting back to that.
I'm not religious or superstitious in any way, but I like to believe that my actions matter, so I also like to imagine that I have something resembling a soul. Just to be clear. I do not believe that my "soul" will live on after my death because I view the concept of a soul as being with an awakened state of mind. My body will on the other hand continue to exist because it will transform into ash, dirt, a flower that's feeding on that dirt or maybe an animal eating this flower and so it will go on, maybe forever.
I do not believe that I will get to reunite with loved ones after I’m dead, that is in my opinion a fantasy. What I do believe is that we can invent, perhaps not immortality, but a prolonged life through science. I do believe in paradise on Earth and I believe that my soul could possible live on, here on Earth where I could stay on with my loved ones in a world that would be very different from the world we know today. I wish that people could think bigger on a day-to-day basis. Because if more people did, we could achieve much more progress. We owe scientist so much and I think it's time for the average citizen to give something back.
Through this movement we could possibly achieve immortality and Utopia, but even if we don't, I don't see how it could hurt to try either way. It's highly logical, it's all about resources, resources of our focus, time, possessions and values being divided in a more balanced way. It's not as if I'm a genious and that's just another reason why I feel so passionately about it. Isn't it ridiculous that we're not already doing this? There's nothing magical about it, it's just about making people see the bigger picture and how we would all benefit from helping mankind as a whole to move forward. I want to get people completely hooked on the idea of Utopia. Not hooked on selflessness, because charities have already tried that and it's not working well enough. Because let's face it, most of the time humans are greedy and people suck. Again, just look at human history.
Still, we're all put together, partly by what used to be stardust, among other things. That's a scientific fact. We're all connected. As a philosopher, one of the existing philosophies that I believe in is Yin and yang. So I gave my heart to the light because there is both light and darkness within the world and within all of us, there are always opposites and I chose to fight for the light by using my own desire as a tool. It's a win-win situation. I fight for whatever is right, because I don't want to live in a world of darkness, but harmony. You're all welcome to join EF. This is my dream, my purpose.
