'SPRING EVENT FOR ARTISTS'
April 24, 2021
Being from the Bronx, getting and showing love to the Bronx means the world to me. A successful event in the heart of Crotona park I met a lot of other young talent trying to make their debut in their first event. The way everyone came together to help each other with tips and supplies to make this event awesome was heartwarming.
'BEOND'S FLASH POP-UP'
January 30, 2021
After a year of uncertainty following the Covid-19 pandemic this was the perfect event to kick off the new year and celebrate with local vendors to bring life into the Bronx. I had a lot of fun mingling and making connections with locals from the area as it was my first time vending in the borough I come from.

Following my last event, I took my shortcomings and prepared myself a lot better. I bought my own tables and lights for this setup resulting in me feeling more confident going into the event. The atmosphere was so fun and positive I didn't feel like I was working. The support I experienced at this event was more than I could've even imagined and it made me really excited to work with RAW again in the future.
'ART AT THE BAY'
August 23rd, 2019
This event was my first time being a vendor and I was so nervous. Being from the Bronx I didn't know what to expect in Long Island but I met a lot of great people along the way. This event really taught me a lot about what to expect and how to be prepared. What you need will not always be provided to you. Although my expectation exceeded my reality it was my first official event and I am grateful for the opportunity regardless of how little I gained monetarily.
'DON'T SWEAT THE TECHNIQUE'
January 18th, 2019
My first taste of having my artwork up in a gallery and also my first ever exhibition. I was both excited and nervous because I didn't know how people were going to react to my art for the first time. This was a group show consisting of 7 artists including myself. I've performed as a dancer before but interacting with my audience on a personal level was something I'd never experienced before.
