I never expected to turn the worst year of my life into art. Freshman year of college I was sexually assaulted and it sent me into a pretty deep depression. This experience stripped me of creativity, motivation, confidence and honestly - the will to live. I was convinced I didn't deserve to wake up in the morning, never mind have the successful career in music that I'd always dreamed of. It took me about a year and a half to stand on my own again and reclaim my passion. Thanks to my revived sense of happiness, confidence and creativity, I have new purpose in life and in my music. I write songs about social issues to raise awareness for them. The goal is to help listeners feel less alone in their struggles and inspired to be vulnerable about them.
