As​ ​an​ ​artist​ ​I​ ​aim​ ​to​ ​create​ ​work​ ​that​ ​is​ ​used​ ​as​ ​a​ ​catalyst​ ​for​ ​social​ ​change;​ ​creating​ ​work​ ​in hopes​ ​to​ ​bring​ ​awareness​ ​and​ ​enlightenment​ ​to​ ​societal​ ​issues​ ​that​ ​are​ ​constantly unacknowledged.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​my​ ​desire​ ​that​ ​my​ ​work​ ​sparks​ ​conversation,​ ​that​ ​an​ ​audience​ ​can​ ​walk away​ ​pondering​ ​a​ ​thought,​ ​one​ ​they​ ​can​ ​resonate​ ​with,​ ​alter​ ​their​ ​perspective,​ ​and​ ​aid​ ​change for​ ​the​ ​greater​ ​good.​ ​Most​ ​importantly​ ​I​ ​aim​ ​keep​ ​the​ ​African​ ​Diasporic​ ​culture​ ​alive,​ ​to​ ​gain knowledge​ ​and​ ​a​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​self,​ ​so​ ​that​ ​we​ ​all​ ​might​ ​thrive​ ​and​ ​seek​ ​liberation.​ ​To​ ​me,​ ​liberation is​ ​our​ ​goal;​ ​to​ ​have​ ​obtained​ ​a​ ​liberated​ ​sense​ ​of​ ​self​ ​through​ ​knowledge,​ ​style,​ ​art,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​way of​ ​life.​ ​Living​ ​life​ ​boldly,​ ​as​ ​we​ ​seek​ ​to​ ​state​ ​change​ ​and​ ​evolution.​ ​We​ ​all​ ​deserve​ ​that​ ​freedom.
