Vires Acquirit Eundo

This year at the age of 21, I moved from Arizona in the US to Melbourne in Australia. I moved to play roller derby for the highest ranked league in the world. My family is not wealthy enough to support me financially through my endeavors, but they did always teach me to channel my feelings into art, and to create things for others. Though I was being pushed out of my comfort zone in new ways, and was discouraged without family nearby, the discomfort led to growth. I often spent my alone time creating paintings, videos, or needle point projects, and after a few months of being here I decided to stay and begin studying art. While I am anxious looking forward towards my next adventure in life, I am also excited, and I know that I will only get stronger as I go.
