Yayoi Kusama’s work has transcended two of the most important art movements of the second half of the 20th century: minimalism and pop art. Plagued by mental illness as a child, and thoroughly abused by a callous mother, the young artist persevered by using her hallucinations and personal obsessions as fodder for prolific artistic output in various disciplines. This has informed a lifelong commitment to creativity at all costs despite the artist’s birth into a traditional female-effacing Japanese culture, and her career’s coming of age in the male dominated New York scene. Her extraordinary career spans paintings, performances, room-size presentation, literary works, outdoor installations, sculpture, fashion, films, design and intervention within existing architectural structures, which allude at once to microscopic to macroscopic universe. Yayoi Kusama was born on March, 22, 1929 in Matsumoto, Japan as the youngest of four children in a wealthy family.

At a young age, my mom and dad worked to help support their families and to pay or college. Because they came from humble beginnings, my parents taught me and brother to respect but not worship money, to be generous to those who are not as fortunate, and to work hard and earnestly for the things that we want. My high school education has positively affected my career and life choices. During these four years, I have had, in my opinion, some of the best teachers in the entire Lamar Consolidated district. My teachers have pushed me to achieve my dreams with high expectations and interesting and useful lessons and without their presence in my life, I would not have achieved all that I have now.
But my friends convinced me that I needed to tell someone. I figured my mom was the easier choice. She’s always been more laid back about that kind of thing so I only hoped she wouldn’t freak out when I gave her the news. “Mom, I’m pansexual. I like girls and boys.” “Don’t tell your father.” Those words repeat over and over in my mind.
I will be the first to admit that adjusting to parenthood alone was rough, and sometimes even now almost two years later it still can be. But you live and you learn, and I get to be the best mommy I can be to my daughter Henley! We may not have everything that we want, but we have everything that we need; most of all we have each other. The way she looks up to me with those soft loving, gentle baby blue eyes and says mommy, pulls on my heartstrings big time. Henley's father never stepped up to be the parent he should have been, but that is okay because I get to be both for
Like any sister would, I snooped through her closet and stole her clothes. I would carefully watch her and her friends spend hours preparing for school dances and hear them critique her while she practiced her dance routines, since she was a part of the school’s dance squad. I spent many nights crawling into her bed when I had a bad dream, and I can feel that sense of security that comes from being protected by my older sister. Nothing comforted me quite like that did. My final stop on my memory tour is down the hall in my parents’ bedroom.
Kate’s motherly and concerned attributes gave her the ability and strength to support her daughter. She felt sorry and wanted the best for Helen, and Kate would have done anything to protect her. In the story, Kate wanted to call a doctor to help Helen, but Captain Keller disagreed. Keller’s line reads, “I’ve stopped believing in wonders… Katie. How many times can you let them break your heart?” In reply, Kate says, “Any number of times” (Gibson 497).
I still remember July 31, 2015 like it was yesterday. I was lying in bed at five in the morning, contemplating the day I had ahead of me on a warm summer morning. Hearing a knock on my bedroom door, my mom walked in and whispered that she was leaving for the hospital with my dad. All I could manage to do was hug her. My mom was scheduled to be induced to have my youngest brother, Andrew.

Mary was born August 5, 1861 in Belleville,IL to Henry and Lavinia Richmond. She was raised by her grandmother and two aunts in Baltimore, MD after her parents died. She grew up around racial problems, suffrage, social, and political beliefs. Because she grew up around those things she started becoming a critical thinker and social activism. Richmond was home schooled because her grandmother and aunts were not familiar with the traditional education system until the age of eleven when she entered public school.
She was honest with me about the medical field, that it would be hard and that you always had to be focused. Distractions were not okay. She strived hard to get to where she is now and I will always look up to her for that. My cousin, Shavon, had the same passion for babies as I do. She actually used to baby sit me every weekend.
