October 11th is National Coming Out Day, and this year I decided that I was going to share my story and officially come out on my own terms.
Two years ago, when I was an undergraduate, I worked at this job on campus that I really loved. It was such a big part of my life and I wanted to go to school so that I could advance to the next part of this job. I had worked up to being in the highest position that I could do as an undergrad, and I felt so great. I felt like I was on top of the world and nothing could bring me down because I had finally dealt with all of the adversity I faced and developed this sense of confidence.
