My life has not always been easy, my stubborn determination has brought me to this point of my life. Leaving my home at a tender age of 16 I have learned to take care of myself. For many years I allowed the expectation of others to run my life. The time has come to follow my dreams. Art has always been a part of me. When I received my acceptance letter from SACI Florence I was in disbelieve and wondered can this be real. It will take some planning and the support of many to make this dream of mine a reality. Thank you for being part of that dream.
