How has 2020 made you stronger?

2020 has made me stronger by giving me the space and time I needed to reconnect with myself and my creativity. It's made me appreciate the energy I have to speak out on social injustices but also the understanding I need to give to myself to rest and recharge. Learning how to balance these factors is what has made me stronger.

Where has your joy come from this year?

My joy this year had come from the expanding and expression of my identity as a black body living in this world. Being able to explore this through my reconnection with fine art along with the unfaltering support of my community and seeing this ritual of social and political exploration through other works of art during a time like this has given me an abundance of joy.
