I Am An Individual celebrates unique human identities through five personal stories of love, appearance, friendship, empowerment, and dreams. Each chapter is a true story, told to us by the models themselves, inspired by their own life experiences releasing from life’s labels, stigmas, and conventions.
"Nikola’s story: The Only Label"
On an open field of grass, Nikola and Yoselin slowly walk towards each other, representing the long journey Nikola took for love.
"Jekill’s story: Not a Shell"
In a world which rewards conventions and is harsh to women who challenge them, Jekill refuses to compromise her appearance.
"Ruta’s story: The Moon"
Ruta was lonely and unsure of her identity. At a club she finds a friend, and more.
"Leslie’s story: Seed"
Leslie overcame bullying at a young age with her mother’s help. She, in turn, hopes to provide inspiration for other women.
"Esteban’s story: Passim"
A circus show captured Esteban’s imagination as a child and since then he hasn’t stopped dreaming, releasing labels and stigmas along the way.
