Meet Samera Paz.
Raised in our Nation's Capitol, her artwork speaks volumes to those who seek beauty in everything.
She is even one of the founders of the Girl Power Meet-ups Movement, along with Lee Phillips, and Ari Melenciano.
Recently, she posted these pictures of her artwork, which was made using blood from her menstrual cycle.
Here is how the internet reacted.
Note: I have edited these pictures to protect the identities of the speakers. To see the unedited comments, visit Samera on twitter @nahpeach.
I reached out to Samera, and this is what she had to say:
"I would not try to change people's opinions." Invoking the right of artistic license, she explained that she "make[s] art that makes people feel something, anything, whether it's good or bad."
A Conversation Starter
Maybe Sam can help us learn to celebrate ourselves.
Shine on you Flower Child you!
