To me, the Octavia Project was a symbol of revolution because we were all learning new ways to think and to act… It’s a space where I felt safe enough to expose my true self, without the worry of rejection.

– Eden, 20

In 2019, Eden joined us as a high school student with a passion for art and a desire to hone her craft. In the five years since, she has started college, worked as a teaching fellow at the Octavia Project, and completed a writing mentorship with the Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers. Eden is now in her third year of college and on track to becoming an Art Therapist while she explores her newfound love for creative writing.
