Love is the driving force behind my art. The reason I get out of bed in the morning and strive to be the best version of myself every single day. Love is the way my man looks at me when I just wake up. It is when my father cooks me dinner because I’m too busy to eat, or when my mother makes me a coffee or tells me to rest because she knows my energy is seeping away. Love is when my best friend messages me out of the blue and tells me she misses me. Love is in the small things, and it is in everything. Love is the reason I’m here today, for if it weren’t for my ancestors and their love for their country and their people, they wouldn’t have fought so hard for the freedom I have to do what I love today.
