Abraham, a Puget SoundOff intern, is a recent immigrant to Seattle and winner of our District’s Congressional Art Competition for an incredible self portrait. His dreams of presenting his work in an art gallery were realized during the month of June, when his paintings and sculptures were featured in the Triangle Art Gallery at the Downtown YMCA. The gallery served as a way to tell various stories of immigration and to raise money for dental procedures that Abraham will have to undergo over the next year.
The Globalist put out an amazing article about Abraham's experience, which kicked his fundraising into high gear. Abraham has a donation page to raise funds, with a goal of raising $10,000. He is more than halfway there, and he still needs more support to reach his goal.
