Almeida (The Glorious)

Book Now

“I’m on a mission to look for my history… I want a relationship with my ancestors… I took my grandmother’s middle name because I like the way it sounded: Almeida, the Glorious. I will pull from my ancestors to create my new self.”

The AMY Project’s young creators present this original creation exploring personal power, relationships with our ancestors and descendants, and how our given and chosen names shape us.
