had some quality time with a couple of our 100cameras students today
around chinatown & discussing how experiences can so powerfully shape us.
all sorts of kinds from our past, our now, & our future!
how it’s the vulnerability that comes from the pressure of a moment
– the who we are, how we wonder how we’re perceived & received,
how we act & react, how we could or could not give back –
that makes us all
complexly human together.
when we asked them how they chose to take the path that shaped
obstacles & hardships into positive choices over negative choices
which can so vividly surround them here in the city,
they made it quite simple:
by summing it up as the “affect of community”.
whether through the community center they’ve attended since they were kids
or other adults & peers taking time to mentor through school activities or sports,
they experienced the importance of wisdom infiltrating decisions.
of realizing that the pressure of a moment can be everything.
(also loved having two teammates from the rad company public-supply join us today.
so pumped about what they are doing with design & art & education. check em out, & #makelines)
