Through my personal and professional endeavors, I quickly learned that I sit on the intersection of Educational Equity, Arts facilitation, and Wellness advocacy. My connection to the arts began during my high school years where I was introduced to visual arts as an outlet for personal life challenges. Art became a huge healing modality where I was able to bring out the parts of me that words could never explain. In this season, I have been able to take a new approach to my art and the collective creativity that I see within my community by highlighting BIPOC joy and love. I strive to find ways to highlight and promote the Bronx and the beauty within our communities despite the negative stigmas we have historically faced about our home.
