“Growing up, I always wanted to be an artist; I love acting, music, fashion and visual art with every fiber of my being. Having the opportunity to play piano in a music video of my own creation, where I worked with other talented artists, was amazing. I’m proud of the work I did then and am still inspired to do art my way and create my own path. 

My journey is far from over: I’m still forging my own path and am working towards creating art that satisfies me. I want to see more LGBTQ artists and help create more imaginative works of art, free from the limitations of the patriarchy. The world is a richer, more vibrant place when we let artists and queer people thrive: if I did not make it to that moment, I would not have grown as an artist and individual, and the world would have lost some vibrance.

Pap tests are life-saving. Cervical cancer was once the leading cause of cancer deaths for AFAB (assigned female at birth) people, but thanks to the Pap screening we are able to prevent thousands of deaths from cervical cancer.“
