This work is her inhale. A supporter of therapy and community, two of the most profound experiences of her adult life occurred while sharing story in front of another artist's camera. Moved deeply by the experience, she's dedicated this space to stories of women who are willing to share the sacred space of the story they've lived, so that we might increasingly see how we all belong to each other. 

 

She who has been silenced, let her speak.
She who persists, let her knock.

She who overcomes, let her dance. 
She who surrenders, let her weep.

She who roots, let her hands rise to the sky, for the warmth of the sun's embrace is falling to light our way.  

Belong, for there is no other.
