The Power Of Art: Uzumaki Cepeda
Uzumaki Cepeda grew up in a Dominican community and experienced repeated sexual abuse as a child. Instead of letting this trauma define her, she utilizes it to do good. Cepeda channels her pain into creating literal safe spaces and installations dedicated to helping heal both herself and others facing the same fate. Her art has given her a new sense of empowerment and love for her body, and she is encouraging others to do the same.
