“I dreamt of finding people from all over the world and being friends, the dreams have come true and it is all based around a silly little open world video game I call home named Second Life.”

Video Premieres 10am Second Life Time

We all want to feel heard, validated, cherished, loved. We all dream of what we can and will do when we grow up, and then things happen. And most of the time we grow out of those dreams, but some of them come true and some of them surpass reality.

I started my Second Life journey over 12 years ago, a simple avatar and flexi prims with drawn clothes over my body. I built a name for myself. Opened and closed a store. Became a published writer in-world that later became a RL magazine. I took silly photos of friends, for magazines like Maniera, Avenue, BOSL and many more that came and went. I became a demoness, a furry, a corgi, a human and a zombie and now I am running my own business helping creators in Second Life and online to live their best life by becoming their social media manager; and all those achievements are NOTHING compared with the over 1000+ lives I’ve come across, that have, in one way or another, marked my journey, formed my character and turned me into the person I am today.

*This* is an open letter to my friends.

The friends I made in a silly little online world, where connections are fast and deep. Where I have come to appreciate some and shed tears for others. Where I have learned to laugh until I have to get up to try and catch my breath. Where I have created bonds that make me feel so comfortable about sharing my face, my body and my RL with some, very few, of them. This is a list of people who are near and dear to me.
