One, in particular, stands out; Elevate & Cultivate is my home. It’s a place that for me started as just a chat with Illiah and Lauren as they began this amazing community. I felt, and still feel honored, to have such an active role in expanding the group and creating a place that everyone can feel they belong. This community gave me purpose when I was searching for something in my own life; it gave me motivation to move forward in the creative field. This community made me remember why I love design.
