Soraida's Artist Statement
"My art reflects the essence of my true self and the truth within me. My
perspective is unique: I am a woman, a Puerto Rican, an artist, a designer
and a businessowner. My experience is diversity: I come from the inner city,
I've spent most of my life in maintream America and I've come to know both
worlds and their people. My struggle is for recognition, acceptance and
inclusion; and, against racism, sexism and the dominant eurocentric male
society, which never expected much from me but still did not allow my voice
to be heard. My belief is that one must empower oneself with one's own truth.
This is my art: Verdadism."
