"I celebrate diversity and strength in how we different from each other. Each individual and its uniqueness hand in hand with a strong communal feeling will lead to a society based on empathy, equality and inclusivity. Receiving different public performances of gender, life-styles and cultures with empathy is for me the most important human quality we have. With all our differences we still share the same space."
