Camilla is wearing a green and purple blouse while smiling standing next to her quote from keynote speech. ""What happens when all my identities intersect with each other? Do you fully see me or do you only see a part of me? Do you only see my Blackness or just my deafness or my womanhood or do you just see Microtia and Atresia? If you cannot see all my identities, then you don't fully see me."
