A character that has many faces of curiosity and creativity. I grew up in a very small town called Cuba in Alabama. It was a really simple type of life, much different than the city. I suppose that’s why parents move to the “country” so they can escape the noise and raise a family. The majority of the town knew each other and I’m pretty sure most were related in some way. I was always known to be wondering how things worked. Why the behavior, why the habits, just why? I am still searching for many answers and that’s why I purposely try to adapt myself to many mediums of creativity and imagination. The storytellers.
It’s beautiful how stories come together and seeing art in any form, grow and take place. I started from being a kid who wanted to experience things that others got to and wanted to prove I can do whatever they did. Thus, got into a lot of fights. Doubts of my talent, my ideas, myself and those feelings drove me to a world where I would create to show that I can.
I guess you can call me somewhat of an enigma. And there are many out there that feel the same, I know. I just do. This is why I have to express myself in these platforms so I can inspire others and leave a physical presence of me when I am gone.
Many kids grow up without having someone to talk to, have fun with, learn from and do what they think that’s right. I just want to create inspiration so they can see that we are all connected and you aren’t alone.
Find your tribe, you’ll see everything clearly. Remember, whatever goal and dream that you have, the first step is the hardest. To just do. And once you do, the path will slowly unfold to guide you.
