Have you ever felt a raging storm stirring within only to explode to an untamable magnitude? When depression, anxiety, and/ or guilt pull you in so deep, these powerful and haunting feelings drown you in an endless pit of self-loathing and self-pity? There was a time in my life when I felt committing suicide was my only escape as I sought relief from the dark emotions that constantly plagued my life. However, standing at the precipice of this life-altering decision, instead of becoming a victim, I was given another chance to survive and fight to see another day. And in the midst of the darkness, true magic happened, and my eyes opened up to my true purpose in life - inspiring people to prioritize their mental health for holistic growth by opening the red door to my journey with anxiety & depression. We may never know what a loved one or neighbor may be going through internally contrary to what is perceived externally, but Projections gives you the courage to persevere and overcome challenges with hope.
Projections Collection is about the light that’s on the other side of scars and is a reflection of the victory of battles continually being conquered and won. Recognizing that suicide is a vacuum that can swallow one whole, the collection is all about mindfulness, kindness, and awareness which are critical in surviving in spite of the circumstances you may be facing. No matter what you go through, know that people don’t determine the outcome; you do. Consisting of three canvasses transformed into sneakerArt, Projections is a call to action to everyone to focus on their mental wellness and to create a web of vigilance to facilitate suicide prevention.
