While I was trying to find my place in a new crowd, I felt that I would lose my approval where I was previously accepted. I feared that I may have unknowingly created dislike and disconnect. With these dilemmas bothering me, I deleted my lovely picture. And with that, all the associated emotions.

To me, qualitative research is like the moving image of people’s lives into words, the art and science of words that cannot be measured by numbers. I know qualitative research cannot be generalised, and there is no scope of comparison between groups or treatments etc. But Albert Einstein said, “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted” and I could not have said it better.

I learned from all of them. From Cindy, I learned the toughness needed to survive in our Portland community. From Betty, I learned that there is strength in being who you are. From J, I learned to keep my own counsel. I shared a secret with her once that she promptly shared. When I confronted her about it, she did not apologize but said simply, “If you didn’t want me to share it, why did you tell me?” And from Rosie, I learned that there was a different world waiting for us outside of our neighborhood.

I made my first Instagram post on the 18th of January, 2013. Proud of the progress the Russian Giant Sunflowers that I had planted in my backyard were making, I snapped a photo, slapped a filter on it, and posting it out into the internet. It got zero comments and zero likes. This was my first step into the world of Instagram. A world that I am still a part of, and a relatively active member of the community, almost 8 years later.
