My story is not about how many times you fall back, it’s about how many times you get up. One of the circumstances that brought me to Chapman Partnership, I had a bit of… some family issues. Coming here I was suffering from depression and PTSD… Chapman helped me learn that I can do what a lot of people told me I couldn’t do. People come here because they have nowhere else to go and this is like a safe haven. My case worker, helped me out with a sketchbook and more materials for my art. And that was a huge help because, it really means deeply that Chapman Partnership actually cares about what you actually want to do in life. Recently I’ve been accepted to Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Chapman, did help me get a major scholarship to MIAD. That was pretty cool. Pretty life changing, actually. Not a lot of people believed in me and Chapman… did.
