‘I’m here at the Salt Lake City vigil for Orlando to show some support for the LGBT community. I’m sixteen years old and I’m a martial artist and karate student and someday I plan on opening a dojo for children who can’t afford karate…children who might be in the LGBTQIA+ community…to teach them to defend themselves against hate crimes, and to offer free classes to people who have survived domestic violence, sexual assault, and rape. I want to teach people how to protect themselves. I’ve also decided that in my dojo, my belt system will be the colors of the rainbow.’
