What if the dictionary was wrong? What if the word “difference” wasn’t there, next to the definition that reads “characteristic that distinguishes one person from another”? And what if the concept didn’t even exist? Because when I look at the Porteuses autour du monde project, all I see are women wearing their babies and loving their babies. Period. I see the joyful smiles of mothers carrying their contented little ones. Period. What if we were all the same, listening to the same music under the same moon every night? Human beings who aspire to grow, thrive, dream and laugh. Because that’s what we are to me.
But, what if the dictionary wasn’t wrong? What if the word “difference” was there, but instead that difference was an unstoppable force? Because if no one was different, if no one ever did anything differently, we would simply stop evolving. What if difference was simply a concept that fuels our curiosity to find out more about others? Because that’s what it is to me. I love people, all people, no matter what they look like, where they’re from, what their personality is like, and, especially, what they’ve done in the past. It’s my firm belief that everyone deserves to be loved and respected. We all have a story—different, of course—so let’s use this wealth to our advantage. Diversity is what makes our world such a beautiful place. I hope this project will bring you as much joy as it has brought me in creating it.
