Artist Major: Fine Arts / Business ’20

Artist Statement: As a creator, as an artist, I’ve always thought and felt, consider it a sacred charge, to not only reflect truth, but also and more importantly, to give voice, to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. That is my sacred charge: to reflect, to give voice, to validate, to inspire. To give the message: you are not alone, and yes, you will make it through. Because this is my charge, I want to broaden media and reach, so that this message, this reflection and validation, can reach out further, wider, and therefore be received by those who need it the most. I want to continue to bear witness, and to give voice, especially to those who have none.
