Meet Me Video
When playing competitive softball, you sometimes get a curve ball thrown at you. Life has thrown me a number of curve balls; I've experienced loss, struggle, and tragedy. The past couple of years have been very overwhelming, and creating art in my spare time has helped me find the strength to heal
Ruby James Goshert not only is my lifelong friend,but my sister too. Growing up, we spent every waking moment together and she has always been my star. In September of 2015, Ruby was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma in her right hip. With support from our city Benicia, Ruby has continued to stay strong.
Not only has softball been an easy way to release stress, but it's also a great place to build friendships. Softball taught me family, friendship and teamwork... Without it, I wouldn't be the person I am today. Competitively, softball is stressful but I love the game.
I started painting about a year ago after I figured out that I could use it as a coping mechanism. When I can't express my feelings through my words, I do it through painting, drawing and sculpture. Through all types of mediums, art has joined me on an adventure to discover myself.
