Hi, I‘m Alejandra. I am Bisexual.

I'm living in Barcelona, sharing a flat with some people who comes to Barcelona for work or anything else, my family is in another village. Now I'm working, a summer job, but I'm studying engineering. My hobbies... well, I really like to go for a walk with some friends, alone or with my dog, actually I'm volunteering in an animal refuge. My passions... I don't know if I really have one... photography maybe... My family is from Peru, me too... I was born there, and lived there till I was 12... then I moved to Barcelona... with my mom and my older brother. In 2006 born, my little brother... I'm in the middle haha We don't have a father... just a grandpa, and we love him. In the school... well the university I have just some real friends, that ones that I can trust, they're my other little family... I prefer that family actually... I really like physics and math... but I hate chemistry, I like history and read books or watch movies about it...I believe in Karma and reincarnation... and I think that self love it's always misinterpreted with selfishness.

What being bisexual means to me

what being bisexual means to me...it means freedom, finally I know what I want... I don't feel confused anymore and I accepted what I am... I'm a person who can fall in love with a boy or with a girl... just because their personalities, not the physical attraction. And that's beautiful.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I would like the world to know about bisexuals is that this kind of people, or someones who can really feel the real love, because we fall in love with the person, not with the gender. That's pure love.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

well... it's sometimes difficult to say it, people doesn't expect this part of me...in my atmosphere just some friends know now that I'm Bi, but I was keeping it for a long time because I was really confused
I know it since I was 15, actually, that I feel attracted by women, but it was confused because when I was 17 I get a boyfriend, I fell in love with a boy and we were together for 4 years.
when I broke up with him... there was a time that I was flirting with some people... boys and girls... but I never fell in love...
then I was with another guy for 6 months... after that I remember one day that I was in a club, dancing and chilling with my friends... and I saw a girl that attracted attention to me...so I needed to talk to her... we dated for 3 months... she breaks my heart, but looking the bright side of this, I realize that I can fall in love with a woman, that's not only physical attraction... I can feel more, for girls and boys
So now, sometimes I feel uncomfortable with my family, because I know that they won't accept that.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

keeping the secrets to some people, even though we're leaving I the city where people are "open mind" and there's a lot of diversity... My mom wouldn't understand... the only person in my family who knows my secret is my older brother, and he's happy for me.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

I don't know... maybe the new experiences hat I had this last year... be with me and know myself.

How have other people in your life reacted to your bisexuality?

my friends, they always know that ha-ha... and my brother too, so since they weren't something new, and they felt happy for me.

What advice do you have for someone who thinks they may be bi or who is in the process of coming out as bi?

enjoy and don't overthink, overthink it's bad, really bad... whatever that can happen, its gonna happened so... let it be and you gonna feel better with yourself
