Hello! this is my entry for RinFanAwards2019 !!!! When i found this franchise through one of my best friends (and siivagunner) one girl in particular stuck to me: and that was rin! at the time, i was going through some really tough friendship and school stuff. Love live, especially Rin, was always there to cheer me up, and continues to do so to this day.

As literally none of you would know lol, i've been struggling with gender identity for a LONG time now, and i still struggle to this day. But, as a matter of fact, Rin has helped me in my journey so far. I relate to her in that she doesn't feel comfortable wearing feminine clothes at first, but overcomes her fears and achieves something great. I relate this to myself, but with masculine clothes and presenting as male. It's pretty hard being closeted, but Rin is always there to let me know that it's ok to not feel comfortable in your own skin, and someday you'll look and feel amazing. ありがとう、Rin-chan! thank you so so much! I hope you enjoy this artwork i made for you! it took tons of motivation to make. It wasn't easy, but i got there! (p.s my grammar isn't the best, sorry if this doesn't make sense! I hope you enjoy nonetheless <3)
