Senna from Peru

“Poetry is how I turn ugliness into art” – says Senna from Peru. I was moved to know Senna from Girl Rising. She is a fighter. She is a poet. Growing up in a Peruvian mining town was tough. But she didn’t give up. Neither her father, who supported her education no matter what. He knew with education Senna will discover her true self and continue with her passion for poetry. Today’s #myfather #illustration is a salute to this father-daughter duo from Peru. [source: http://girlrising.com/sennas-story/]
