How did you get into debt?
student loans plus a single, uninsured medical crises
How does your economic reality effect your art?
I don't have the time or money I need to create on the level that I am meant to. Worry about debt affects my mental process and takes away from my capacity to conceptualize. Being transgender, the anxiety of not have the resources I need to shape my destiny is that much more painful.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
-My credit score wouldn't be a powerful obstacle to overcome -I wouldn't have credit collectors harassing me regularly -I could focus on ideas and concepts rather than anxiety and fear -I would have more hope for my future
