I accomplished things in 2018 that I never thought I could. I didn’t let my anxiety and depression stop me from achieving my goals and I ended up with the job of my dreams. Being able to make art everyday and have it walk around in the world on a living human is pretty crazy to me and I’ll always be super grateful. Thank you to everyone who supported me through this process because I definitely couldn’t have done it alone! 🖤 .
