For one to be able to vulnerable, one must first feel loved. Will you be able to love both my light and dark, despite me not knowing the full extent of my own darkness? Or if the light within me might blind the both of us at the end of the day? When you ask me to be vulnerable, do you expect me to bare my soul or only perform bits of it acceptable to you?


Jiwa means soul. This is a documentation of my soul, or at least whatever I know of it. Today I perform to you all of my dualities – my physical form and my soul, my masculinity and my femininity, my darkness and my light. I invite you to investigate me as I investigate myself and ask: Is this enough vulnerability or too much?
