No One Belongs Here More Than You

Project Description

As part of a self-healing journey, I joined CA with the simple intention of reconnecting with my childhood passion. Drawing was my escape and I passed hours creating fantasy versions of myself – different features, perfect hairstyles, cool outfits – I longed to be more like the characters I created. I grew up and stopped drawing, but continued to explore identity as I tried on different personas in an attempt to fit in and feel like I belonged. This self-portrait will serve as a reminder that I now choose to come home to myself instead.

My Creative Aha! moment

The one important aha! moment I've had in my creative process of this project is:

The creative direction I'm now heading in is very different from what I envisioned at the start of CA. This process has just reinforced for me the fact that CLARITY comes through taking ACTION, not endless rumination!
