" Standing in front of the kids from USD 259 made me realize that they were our future doctors, lawyers and entrepreneurs." Sontia explains. " It was an extremely humbling experience. I realized very quickly that these children were our future and that it was my JOB (as well as everybody else’s) to not only lead by example, but to continue paving the way for the growing youth who dare to take their OWN path."
In addition to being able to present her artwork to the kids, Sontia was also able to meet a lot of essential black business owners and well known artistsin her own community. "The amount of love and talent circulating through that room was remarkable and the connections that I made are sure to last a lifetime."
