Answer: "Absolutely. The arts and artistic expression have been very impactful throughout my life. Ballet was integral to my childhood (age 3-18) and provided both an arena for expression as well as a community surrounding me that gave me support, inspiration, drive, and an essential sense of self. I was fortunate to be raised in a family who valued the arts and travel and exposure to other cultures tremendously. A vacation or trip was never taken without a visit to the local artisans, galleries and varieties of cultural expression to learn about community and what mattered to them. It has continued to be a goal as a mother, to be able to give this gift to my son as well. Valuing humanity and individuality and uniqueness is often best learned by experiencing the world’s and views of others."

Explanations: Thank you so much for allowing me to participate. The arts, culture and ensuring that we support a vibrant cultural climate and the artists who make that possible is essential and absolutely critical to me. I have been a lifelong supporter of the Arts and artists, am on the board at SpyHop, and my son is an aspiring young designer and film maker. I am a passionate champion of the arts. Jen
