Hi Bernie, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
At The LA Art Box, we position ourselves as modern day “storytellers”.
You never know where a conversation is going to lead, especially when it’s between a mother and her 18-year-old son.
My story started June 2020 with the comment, “I don’t really know much about being Filipino”. My sons had moved from city to city several times because I was adamantly determined to move up in my career. What I did not realize was that with every move, I took away my sons’ opportunities to share in the valuable conversations about the richness of our Filipino culture that I constantly heard as a child. Growing up, I was surrounded by my family who shared stories after stories about everything and everywhere. “Kuwento”, as my grandmother would call it; These stories shaped me.
