Sam Marcial

I was born in 1999

That means I don't fit in with the early 90’s

Or the later 2000’s that means I’ve been stuck between two eras, always finding myself in the middle of things never understanding why I was worried about raising a kid at the age 9.

And I don’t know how to ride a bicycle.

I'm a sucker for a milkshake and a deep conversation

I’m still learning how to be passionate while not expecting it in return

I was born choking and I've been having trouble breathing ever since

I like boba...a lot

Jerome McClelland

I was born a borderline 90’s baby

That means I’m crazy mixed with stupid

I don't know how to love myself all the time

Like me, and myself had a falling out and I'm just in the middle I'm a sucker for sweets and the music my parents grew up on

I'm still learning how to be loved

And to love all of the perfect imperfections that is me

I was born broken and I have been a work in progress ever since

I like drawing… a lot

Giselle Rocha

I was born like fire through rainy skies

Even though they asked for a sunny day

I don't know how to speak in emotional moments

But I'm a sucker for cheesy musicals with romantic episodes & villainous antics

I'm still learning how to be myself in a place where I never could.

I am learning how to speak out loud

I was born like fire and I’ve been dim ever since

I like singing… a lot
