My artistic background is in portrait painting, sewing, drawing, and jewelery-making. I am a community organizer from Boston, MA, U.S.A. For the past two years, I have been helping develop art groups in homeless shelters. The goals of the groups are to provide a safe space for individuals to have a creative outlet and support one another.
I am pursuing an MSc in Interdisciplinary Creative Practices at the University of Edinburgh and developing skills as a documentary film maker. I plan to continue creating documentaries that focus on social change programs. My goal is to use film as a tool to increase awareness of social justice issues.
