One perfect example is found in one of the family videos, were we are able to see how Kip’s dad encourages Kristin to do here cartwheels and hand stands.

I believe that Jackson is trying to say that identity is not only your name and who you are, but it is also what you do and some fail to see things the way they are and not the way they think it is.
