Being an artist is hard. It comes with much doubt especially if you are an artist of color. Some days I question if what I am doing as an impact and then I get messages from others that share similar identities telling me they can relate. To me this is why our art work is important. Often we don’t see our stories reflected and if we do they are edited and molded into something that misses our nuances.
My advice to a young creative is write the story you want to read. Write something if you feel is missing in the world and make that your niche. Ultimately the role of art is to challenge the status quo and bring people together. Trust, that your work will make an impact.
