Dear Crew Finch,
After almost a year of bubbles, online learning, lockdowns, tiers – and tears! – I just wanted to send you this Valentine’s Day message to tell you how much I admire you all.
I admire your resilience.
I admire your courage.
I admire your motivation.
I admire your positivity.
I admire your humour (or at least humouring me!)
I admire your hard work.
I admire your compassion.
I admire that you are still working hard to become the best versions of yourselves.
I admire you for checking in every morning in Crew.
I admire that even through the toughest of times (or should that be especially through the toughest of times?) we are, first and foremost, Crew.
So, this Valentine’s Day I want you to take some time to send some love to the most important person in your life: YOU.
Love yourself. Appreciate yourself. Do something that makes you feel good.
(You definitely deserve chocolates and flowers, too.)
Because, as me and my mate RuPaul always like to remind you:
