I know first-hand the benefits of being exposed to art making at an early age. Having this opportunity to create helped me grow in an incredible way, and shaped me into the person I am today. This is why I am passionate about working with youth through visual arts programs, especially kids that have a lack of accessibility to the arts.
Arts education plays a key role in teaching youth about self-expression, decision-making, cultural awareness and how to be creative thinkers. It also teaches them to experience the world in a different way. All of these are just a few of the transferrable skills that can be used in other areas of their life.
My goal is to use the power of the arts to enrich and positively impact the lives of as many children as I can.
