About My Family

In 2008, I had four fantastic siblings, a mom and a dad who loved me well, and a home that instilled a love of art, people, and the crazy goodness of Jesus inside my passionate little body. When I was ten years old, my parents started adopting my little brother, Aklilu, from Ethiopia. Now by […]

Well, parts of me are exactly what you might label them, but as a 17 year old in the year (almost) 2017, I’m ready to take a sharpie to this topic. With my own two hands, 26 alphabetical resources, and this big heart I have (that might not be the way I thought it would […]
