The Story of my Life came to inception through a personal life changing experience; with her grandmother’s diagnosis of cancer. With only six weeks to live, her grandmother’s final weeks not only changed her priorities but also her perspective. Each day as she visited her grandmother, she recognized the need for creative expression. There were so many people in the hospital that were facing the same fate, and each so willing to share their stories. In this six-week period, she learned more about her grandmother, as truth and authenticity became a reality. This became one of her most cherished memories to date and her goal moving forward is to bring other’s individual stories to fruition, sooner as opposed to later.
