Pinays in the Arts Showcase 2018

I've been given the honor to be a speaker at this event put on by the sisters of Kappa Psi Epsilon over on the campus of San Francisco State Univeristy.

I'll be talking about my journey as a creative in my field and also about discovering, figuring out your identity, as well as finding your voice as an artist. With all that, comes different struggles and victories on my journey to where I am today and addressing some of these issues along the way.

Inspired by the infamous Maya Angelou poem, 'And Still, I Rise,' this year we will be showcasing a variety of successful ladies in creative fields to empower anyone in attendance to rise above societal norms around creative professions. We've connected with Animation / VFX companies along with local independent artists to showcase top ladies in both leadership and creative passions. Matched with our current roster of singers and spoken word artists, this event is definitely one you don't want to miss!
