“Collaborating my photos, and my blogs it’s a healing I believe...My passion is to share and connect.”
Her photograh on canvas has become just one symbol for the hardships she’s been through her whole life and her undeniable passion to make a difference in our community. Connect with Jessica, and listen to our full interview with her about the project on MorningFile.
