My education

The supply is a non-profit organization that provides educational supplies and resources to children and schools in the developing world.

I was asked to participate in a collaborative project (among artists, musicians and writers) and to create one piece based on the statement, "This is my education".

The group objective is to raise funds to continue their work and also to raise awareness about poverty being a result of the lack of education and the need to provide those educational resources to those who need them.

It was a fun experience doing something with a higher cause and not to feel egocentric for a change. In my work I referred to the soviet influence in my life- the education that I received in my childhood. Which in one sentence was: brush your teeth, drink milk, work hard, be healthy, be decent- BE A GOOD CITIZEN OF THE SOVIET UNION.
