I have a voice. It wants to be heard. It needs to be heard. And it has a right to be heard.”

Awakenings Artist

Sharing who I am and what I have experienced brings me out of the shadows of abuse and shame, and connects me to other dreamers.

Awakenings Artist

I just need a hand to transform all the ugliness that I’ve experienced into something that can heal myself and others.
