My friend Carolina is a badass. I know no other single word that can encompass the amazingness that is Carolina. In her work, she advocates for immigrant rights. She is currently in doing a fellowship to better the world through art. She works her magic on words and turn them into poetry. With her friendship, she has inspired me to become a better person and lifts me up when I lack confidence in myself (as well as many others, I’m sure!). As a person, she is continually challenging herself to do things that scare her, make bold decisions, to make sure she continues to grow. Without a doubt, she is one of the most lovely, creative, kind, and bold people I know – and am lucky enough to call a close friend!
On one of our adventures together, she suggested that we check out Los Angeles Mural Mile. This is one of my favorite finds from it.
In honour of Maya Angelou today, I will leave you with one of her inspirational quotes to go with this mural. “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
