     My journey in the arts is a testament to my resilience and creativity. Despite my neurodivergent background, including Tourette's Syndrome, and brain damage from a 2019 accident, I view these conditions as a superpower. Art therapy has been a significant part of my journey, enabling me to overcome obstacles and inspire others with similar experiences.
