About the Artist
Christina Papaleo is an advocate, an artistic creator, and a disabled woman. She believes that the greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are, and the second greatest challenge is choosing what to do with what you have discovered. Christina has chosen to embrace creativity as a place of empowerment, to develop a transformational opportunity for her visual impairment to serve as a part of her identity, not as a medical diagnosis. When she is not in her sketchbook, Christina serves as a Disability Access Counselor in the Office of Disability Services at Syracuse University, having joined the SU community in August 2019.
