Artist: Jess Bernhart

Jess Bernhart is an Atlanta-based artist, dabbling in painting, photography, installations, and creative writing. Jess is not a trained artist – one day she just found it sad that as kids we draw and paint and write stories all the time, and then we “grow up” and stop. So Jess started making art again. She believes that everyone is an artist, but not everyone knows it.  Jess also believes in the power of artists to change the world. Art is the best way to tell a story, to make a connection, and to represent humanity. If we ever enter utopia, we will ride in on the back of art.

Kenya O.

Inspiration:
Kenya O.

Kenya is 12 years old and has been a member of the Samuel L. Jones Club for six years.  She is considering becoming a psychologist when she grows up, because she wants to study the human brain and understand why people do the things they do.  She says that the BGCMA has taught her to be more independent and helped her learn to accept people for who they are.  To her, the BGCMA means unity.
