Home Redacted by Nia Scott

A visual response to the weight of my best effort in a world I could not/will not/will never control and the fellowship that brought me here.

"It is hard work holding yourself accountable for being your best self every day. The difficult, reoccurring choice to be yourself comes with the sacrifice of immediate comfortability. Being your best self does not guarantee success or happiness or anything else you assume might come with steadfast obedience."
