Okay enough with my jibber, jabber.....

Have there been any obstacles that you feel that you’ve had to work your way around to reach the point where you’re at now?

Carlos Donjuan:
Well growing up I saw many of my friends beaten down, locked up and even killed. Its unfortunate that some of us have to grow up in environment like that and its like this for too many of us. Thankfully I had my crew and we got through a lot of this madness together. As an individual, one of the constant battles that I face in both the university and art world is people judging me for my appearance. I will show up to a meeting or art show wearing some Jordans and a rocking a New Era and people automatically think I am some trouble maker. A lot of people don’t even believe that I am a graduate student, even the Latinos. When people unfairly judge me like that, they just make me want to work harder. I get even by getting my education, winning art competitions, having art shows and just being successful in completing my goals. In the e nd, I will be everything that they thought I couldn’t be."
