Madeleine M, 19, Walpole, MA / Pittsburgh, PA
As a college student, creativity is a form of self-care for me and provides me with an outlet to express myself when the going gets tough. I am always trying to find new ways to be creative by combining words and images together. My journal is a sacred space for me where I am able to depict how I am feeling with pencils, pens, paints, and more. By giving myself the time to be creative, I am able to reflect on where I’ve been, where I am now, and where I’m going as I try to promote kindness in the world.
