“I hope my art makes people feel something. I was thinking, ‘How can I create something from my home?" because, I couldn't be at the airports protesting. I was expecting a couple likes and comments but, not the reaction I received.”

As an avid fan, Audrey asks Mary about her confidence and how she communicates that through her artwork.

“After paying for an expensive art school, I didn’t find a job right away. It took a lot to rebuild my confidence. I let one stupid event dictate my confidence and abilities for like a decade.”

Throughout the episode, Audrey encourages listeners to do a 100 Day Challenge, be authentically them, and not to walk on eggshells when it comes to taking a stand.
