Meet Jo, a creative and artistic deep thinker. She spent 7 years in foster care before aging out and has clung to passion for art, using it as a way to deeply express herself. She dreams of speaking to others about her story through pieces that she has created and fashioned with her own hands.
Dream Makers has come alongside her to make her art available to others and to create a platform in which she can sell her craft as a means to provide for herself by assisting with the printing, pricing, and shipping of her beautiful piece, titled “Black Woman is Culture.”
She has always been a storyteller, and through art and usage of artifacts like old pills and paperwork from old hospital stays, she hopes to tell not only her story, but hopefully the long line of Black women with bipolar from whom she descends.
Jo is currently pursuing a Master’s in Public Health and will graduate in 2022. Your support will help her thrive while in graduate school as she prepares to help other foster youth like herself!
