I am not my job.
I am not my net worth.
I am not a test score.
I am not my address.

You are not your sex.
You are not your faith.
You are not your skin.
You are not your purchasing power.

I am not my age.
I am not a brand.
I am not a tax bracket.

We are not labor.
We are not the market.
We are not assets.

Don’t check all the boxes that apply.

The deer in the forest does not ask its worth.
I am original. Whole. Unique. Kindred.

I am not looking for your price tag.
I am not looking for your label or your part number.
I am looking at you.Β
