“The core theme in my EP is a struggle with identity. What’s my identity when society dictates how I should present myself because of my race, sex, religion, sexual preference. What’s my identity, when the borders keep changing, when I’ve been displaced, fled my country because of war, what’s my identity when my sex changes? Do I even know my own identity, or am I just portraying what I think is expected of me?”
