My name is Evelyn Martinez and I have been involved with Art Share Los Angeles since my 10th grade in high school. I am now in my second year in college and I am still involved with this organization because it became my second home. Art Share has been a place that has offered me guidance and a safe space to grow as an artist. Art Share helped me defeat my community's stereotype and gave me and my siblings a better path to follow. When I found out about Art Share I was afraid to go and see what it was about because I was only 15 and I was extremely shy. Once I became comfortable within their program and with the staff I told everyone I knew about Art Share because I wanted everyone to have the same experience I did. Apart from them helping me stay focused in school they allowed and gave me the opportunity to grow as an individual. If it wasn't for Art Share I would have never been exposed to art and art's healing powers. I wouldn't be the person I am now.
