Who would we be if we spent our entire lives solely in the safety of our comfort zone? Whether it's new encounters or experience, daring to cross the line between the familiar and the unfamiliar is always a test of our character – but it's also our own choice. Breaking the ice means facing our uncertainties head on. Taking one more step, even though every part of our body is screaming to run away. It's a coming-out and a first date. Starting a new job and confronting your parents. It's deciding to drop out of school and answering an unknown number. This year's Mezipatra wants to emancipate and inspire you to break the ice around you. Step into the cold water with us! Smash glass ceilings, overcome stereotypes, call attention to injustice. The first step is up to each of us.
