As part of the international campaign, Dear World, Missouri State had the opportunity to have students tell their unique stories. Dear World strives to start conversations and to forge connections between people in a world where we know each other less. They do this through their signature black ink on skin, and it really does get people talking! As a member of the committee that brought this campaign to campus, I participated in the VIP photoshoot with student leaders and faculty. I wrote on my body, "It's Not a Coincidence" which is something that has consistently defined my life. Anytime I have had a significant loss in my life, it has been raining, and I will no longer accept that the rain is just a coincidence.
