Too often we allow the stories and narratives that others have of us dictate the way that we live our lives. Jessi is no different. In this discussion, she guides the audience to the realization that we've all given away authorship of our lives at some point, by sharing her own experience of being trapped by the expectations of others. The stories she shares center on her identity as a transwoman who lived in the closet of masculinity into her 40s.
