“Creating art helps me feel at peace and centered. It is a way of expressing my emotions and helps me process trauma. It can be challenging to find places to do my art because of how I’m treated in the community. I often feel misunderstood. When I can’t build, I draw to keep my hands busy. It allows me to meditate and focus.
REDUN has been an important support network in my life. It has allowed me to indulge my talent in new and expressive ways. Have confidence in yourself. It’s amazing what you can do when you take time to focus – you can achieve anything.”
