There are a lot of people who suffer through many problems in this world. But when a person decides to immerse himself in the world and what it contains despite these terrible things, a truly amazing thing happens. He is able to see the beauty that completely outweighs the bad. Each person on this planet has a struggle, a story. And that story is worth telling. Art is one of the ways that that story can be conveyed the best. We have the power through photography, through clay, through music, through any form of communication. We have the power to convey the truth, to move people to change. We hold the power to change the world for the better, and at the same time have our own world be changed. Art is cross-cultural; it helps us all find a middle ground in which we can relate to each other in one way or another. It breaks barriers. This is why I choose to use my talent. I am using it to help the hopeless see their beauty and potential, and then pursue that. I am using art to make the fortunate of this world become aware of what is going on around them. And I can connect those two groups together through my artwork.
Use your art. Use your talent to impact this world. You hold that power.
