I CAN create peace within myself, within others, within my community, and within the world.
* The following is an update from the artist, submitted on June 12, 2013:
When I created this particular I CAN hand, I had no idea what to do with my life. What I did know is that I wanted to create peace: within myself, in my community, and on a global scale. At the time it seemed little more than a pipe dream, an idea that couldn't possibly come to fruition, at least not in a tangible, long-lasting way. Still, creating peace was something I hoped I could eventually turn into a reality. My I CAN started as a tiny nugget of hope on my hand. I found that by simply shifting my attitude from ‘I can't possibly create peace’ to ‘I CAN Create Peace,’ I've witnessed and experienced positive effects.
It was with this new mindset that I discovered my life's purpose: to help others heal through art. After creating my I CAN hand, I (with the incomparable inspiration and support from the women of, and volunteering with, AWBW) decided to become an art therapist. I begin graduate school for art therapy this coming fall. Figuring out my path gives me peace, both from obtaining a much sought after answer to a burning question, and from knowing that I will get to make a meaningful career out of serving others.
As an art therapist, I will be helping to create peace in my community through the creation of art. And I have dreams to one day take art therapy abroad, effecting peace globally, one I CAN at a time.
