“As an own voices story, I feel a degree of responsibility to get this right, to tell this story exactly right. And I’ve had to tell myself that I’m not responsible for all stories, I’m not the answer to all questions. I am telling this story as it has impacted me, my family, and my experience.” – Isabel Ibañez
