It’s a story about a girl with an afro (Seriously, very important piece of information) who lives in a world where alter egos exist. Period. They’re loud, they’re obnoxious, and sometimes they’re the only thing keeping you from the brink of insanity. Stumbling through a new city Mak and her alter ego discover the beauty of taco trucks, group therapy in the form of Alters Anonymous and most importantly, that sometimes the best way to navigate this crazy world is to become best friends with, well… yourself! https://www.youtube.com/user/JustMakeda
