Creativity changes people’s lives
White supremacy and capitalism are the reason why we have imposter syndrome. It’s not because we don’t do enough, not because we don’t go to specific colleges. We all are creative. We all have (the) potential to change other people’s lives. That’s my goal in life—to awakening people and have them pursue their own destiny’s.”
—Muax Masure/ Inclusive UX Strategist / Consultant,
