How does being multi-ethnic impact your creative work?
Being My true self in all forms and having these layers to present to the world and relate to other stories that are similar in my art form and human form. It feels powerful and meaningful to being a mixed selection to stand out in society.
What is the significance of being connected to your culture?
Being Egyptian connects me to the African KEMETIC side of my past life and ancestors and bringing them back to life in this world with a goal of change and truth , being Carribean adds to my taste of childhood and being Brown of a beautiful skin color of the sun lightly toasted haha. And being spiritual of all the aspects of myself and how they all connect.
