My master's thesis for the School of the Art Institute, afforded me the opportunity of volunteering at Teen Living Program's Belfort House, a shelter for youth experience homelessness. I've been leading an art group there since last June and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the creative, intelligent, and funny group of young people living there. They've been incredibly generous with their hospitality towards me and have even asked me to write a blog post for their organization.
