I couldn't do an Instagram takeover without posting something pride-related. It is an important part of my identity and being a member of the LGBTQ+ community fills me with pride and gratitude. Over the years, I've met so many inspiring, strong fellow community members and hearing their stories, be it coming out or finding themselves, is what I cherish deeply and draw inspiration and empowerment from.
I wish for a world where people can love who they love and be who they are without being scrutinised, followed, persecuted or tortured or killed for it. Love is love and I will be unapologetic, out and proud as much as I can and I will march. Not only for myself but also to do my bit to make the world a more accepting place and to shine a light onto those that can't advocate as savely and securely as I can.

I'm Julia ( @possiblywonderful ) and I'm based in the vibrant city of Berlin. I joined the wonderful Global Voices family in 2014 as a German translator and a while after started to work as a Lingua editor as well.
Here's to a great week with impressions from Berlin and snippets of my life and what I'm passionate about!
