I want to take a minute to talk about community. Since I started this artistic journey in February, I have been introduced to so many good people. Social media and outlets like @hinfluencercollective
have really allowed me to link up with not only creative people, but genuinely good people.
I am a high functioning autistic. Put simply, I don’t do well with people (especially in groups). This community has not only welcomed me, but encouraged me and helped me to grow - not just an an artist, but as a person. I truly feel like I’ve become part of a family. From last minute shoot ideas to editing, there is always something to be learned. I have pushed past my boundaries and toppled over the barriers of social anxiety that are pretty much debilitating for people like me. I owe it not just to locals, but artists all over the world. I hope to give back, and in turn, bring together even more people. If I can overcome my obstacles, anyone can.
