I had a catastrophic illness at 40 and lost everything. I am in school now to rebuild my future. I am passionate about art, it is one of the greatest healing tools we have. I would like to partner with psychologists and teach Art Therapy. I have a foundation which I had to sideline when I fell ill, but I still dream of starting it: a virtual and real life community center, the motto: Weaving Family Future and Friends through Art, Activism and Volunteering. I am a great candidate because I have overcome insurmountable events. I use my time to guide young people and I refuse to give up on myself or my dreams. I simply need a little help to get there.
