The New York City skyline has inspired millions of people to speak power to their truth. NYC is a place where people can truly express themselves and be who they are meant to be. The skyline welcomed the immigrants going to Ellis Island, and continues to welcome those in search of opportunity. With the sun rising behind the iconic Empire State Building, it symbolizes the rising strength that each of us needs to be our true selves.
