Blending: The Adventures of Life and Art by Vanessa Fiore
About the Book
Sometimes we form friendships in the most unlikely places. Sometimes we gain confidence in moments where we feel the most uncomfortable. This is a story of a single father and his daughter navigating life, family and activity that changed it all-ART. You never know who or what is going to change your life, but you have to be open to it. Follow Shenita’s journey, as she is pushed out of her comfort zone and into a brand new world of possibilities.
About the Author
I have worked in the criminal justice system for over 16 years and I realized that if you truly want to help people, you need to do it from the ground up. From the street. Face to face. I want people to feel my love and heart. I want them to feel that someone cared who didn’t have to. I created the Village-Works art therapy program in 2020 and so far, we have had 10 classes. Classes in 2020 and 2021 were held in Camden, NJ. The mission of Village-Works is to provide free art classes to those in need. I will be providing 12 free art classes in 2022 to be split between Atlantic City and Millville, NJ. My objective is to always provide a voice to the voiceless. Some of the kindest, most intelligent people I have ever met, are those I have met on the street. If only they knew that the love they give me, is much greater than any love I could give them. For that, I will forever be grateful.
