My name is Chasie, the obstacles I have overcome are being angry so quickly. Art makes me feel quite and focused and helps me to think about positive things. It helps me stay focused on good things instead of negative things. The picture represents me and shows my potential to keep my goals and to do what is right. I also have learned how to handle myself with art. It settles my mind especially when I have bad thoughts. I first learned art in school at the age of six years old. I have continued to do art when I attended Nan Coley Mental Health in Alexander City. Miss Lucy at the center had me to draw things that I saw in the dark and she’s always complimented me on my talents. Because I’ve used art as an outlet, I’ve become a person who loves and enjoys all aspects of art.
