The Art of Esteem

The Art of Esteem

Some often wonder how creativity and the arts help develop self esteem. Personally, I have said this before and I will say and acknowledge this again, if it was not for music and the school choir I was involved with I would not have survived school be in elementary or high school in the way that I did.
