“Herd of Zebras began as my personal blog where I could express my pain, my sadness, my ‘differentness’ because all around me were friends who were starting their families and I felt so ‘other’ – like a zebra in a herd of horses.”
“Being grounded for months was not in my 2018 plan. All the old demons such as, ‘you’re too fat to ride,’ ‘you’re too uncoordinated to ride,’ ‘you should just give up and let yourself go,’ ‘why don’t you just accept your age and grow old,’ etc., etc. screamed louder than ever before.”
