The “Use Your And” campaign was started by Venus earlier this year to show how women are more than just one thing.
I’d personally like to say a huge well done to Carrie Hope Fletcher (author, vlogger, singer and actress) for taking part in this campaign – it is such a big issue we have that we have to pigeon hole ourselves as one thing. I’ve linked her video below because it’s such an important cause and I think we should all start using our AND.
So here I am – using my AND and taking a stand for people all over the world – not just women, but EVERYONE. We all have an AND. So let’s use them.
I am Melissa Holden. I am an author and a blogger and a student, and a daughter. I am an artist, and a bar maid and a friend and a girl. I am pretty and I am clumsy. I am intelligent and I am funny. I am silly and I am a reader and a writer. I am a poet and I am a sister and an aunt and a niece and a cousin. I am proud, I am a singer and I am short. I am me.
So who are you? Use your AND and tell me who you are.
