“Sharing was one of my biggest obstacles because I never believed I was a great artist.
Until Ms. Y told me one day, ‘Everyone isn’t the same. Everyone has their own art to show the world.’
After that, I shared my photography with my classmates and teachers. They loved it and supported my ideas. It it weren’t for ArtWorks, I would be lost. Once my classmates saw my photos, they gave me positive feedback. It was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders because not one negative thing was said. I’m glad I got the chance to show them my passion and for them to accept my photos with such openness.”
