People of Regent: Shelby

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that’s one of the many things my mom has taught me. She is probably my biggest inspiration. She makes me question things, and helps drive me toward not being such a People of Regent (Shelby)sheep, I guess. She encourages me to not be like everyone else. And this mindset not only helps me in life, but with my art also. It helps me think differently, more openly, because everyone has their own interpretation. I grew up in a pretty conservative school in the past, and they always tried to restrict me in that way. Regent and the people here have encouraged me to realign with what my mom has taught me, and I am grateful for that.”
