“Hats off” to me symbolizes the graduation ceremony enjoyed by many students at the end of their degree course. But for some it’s a time of discovery and understanding of who and what they are. “Mask off” relates to a realization that we are all different and that for some neurodivergence can make such achievements in life even harder. Constant “masking” in social situations must be exhausting. Only in private can “masks off” truly happen.
