Hiding under my hearing loss is something I have done for many years. It became an excuse to stay in the comfort zone of within my own cochlear shell. Overcoming the fear of putting myself in the spotlight and seeing my disability as something that can empower me instead of it being an impairment, was a lesson that took a long time and many milestones to learn.
This piece represents the feeling that comes with taking charge of you own life and not letting any disability, be it physical, mental or emotional, stop you from living your dreams and going after what you believe in.
With this Week 12, I conclude my Weekly Letting Go project because I believe it has served its purpose. It has given me courage to create freely without self judgment. I will continue to make many art pieces, but I will be concentrating more on making sure they are connected with the message I want to convey without the rush of the 1 week timeline attached to it.
I hope you will continue to tag along with me on this journey. Thank you for all the time and support you have given to me and my art up until this point.
