Artist Statement: I chose to contribute to Roc the Future because I believe that everyone deserves a safe space to grow, learn, share, and feel supported. As well as an equal chance to gain knowledge, confidence, strength and preparation for the changes and portals we ascend through in life. 

The piece I created for this fundraiser holds many symbolic features that I felt were necessary to bring awareness to the state of our world. The gazing heart symbolizes empathy, which is the ability to acknowledge and understand someones pain, being fully supportive and encouraging. The yin yang symbolizes the balance of the universe and the idea that human beings are all part of the bigger picture, the process of nature. The rainbow symbolizes an overflowing abundance of love and unity, and the hands symbolize the whole world working together to create progression and change, the power of unity and a collective consciousness is stronger than anything. Together, we can change the world. For the colored candles I have created some positive affirmations to go along with:

I am strong.

I am determined.

I am creative.

I am loving and healing.

I am communicating.

I am patient.

I am whole.
