We are extremely fortunate to have such talented street artists in Jersey City. The beautiful murals really brighten and enhance our community, turning Jersey City into an outdoor art gallery.

I feel blessed with the support I have today and the opportunities that come my way from simply not being afraid. I want myself and other Dreamers to be loud, speak out, and strive. We are definitely not alone in this confusing time.  I believe nothing can ever stop us...

What was your pivotal moment in your life...

I fell in love with Andrew Scott Taylor’s Instagram feed.  I can't remember if I followed him because he used the hashtag “Hoboken” or because I was following photographers and he showed up as someone I should follow.  Either way, his work is amazing and he does a lot...
