What does the theme ‘Proud to be’ mean to you?

"Proud to be" to me represents aspects of myself previously unappreciated due to society's perspective. It is a reminder that I have got to a stage where I'm confident in my perspective of these aspects, and am able to appreciate and celebrate them confidently.
