So this beautiful work of art was done by a sweet friend I made in speech class:
A random, required class, most college students dread taking. I dreaded it as well, due to my own fear of people's judgment, but soon came to LOVE the class as I realized I was getting to know every single story in the room. This perspective-change wrecked me with love and compassion for the strangers that fill my days. You really never know the story of the person next to you.. and once you do, your preconceived judgments or fears of them radically shift to great love and appreciate for who they are and all they've overcome. You are reminded that God has created everyone so uniquely and planted within them great purpose and talents.
I find this picture so captivating and impactful because it reveals how Nadiya sees the world around her (in an extremely artistic and beautiful way) My goodness, people may view her as quiet or disengaged in class from the outside, but if they shifted their focus from their judgments of her TO HER DESK where this insane masterpiece was being sketched, they would get a glimpse into the unbelievable talent and treasure within her.
This work of art is so incredible Nadiya ❤️🙌🏼
keep creating and inspiring other with your insane talent.
