Tree

Hello all you beautiful spirits my name is Paris brown but I go by my souls name which is Tree I am a 25 year old artist/activist from Chicago Illinois. I was shot and paralyzed July 1, 2012 at 2am  my journey as a t5 paraplegic has been bumpy just like all of yours, filled with love , anger , depression etc.... in the firsts few years I was truly sad and almost hopeless i was shot during the summer leading to my senior year of high school and I almost didn’t go back but I’m glad I did I finished my senior year out strong graduated then went on to do a year of college but with no real support systems I dropped out after my first year. Fast forward to 2017 i was reciting a poem I wrote at an open mic I went to and got asked to be a part of a small documentary the Chicago tribune was doing of music and violence in Chicago that lead me to eventually be hired by a non profit organization in my city named Alternatives inc that’s focuses on youth and family services. Working with this org lead me to connect with black lives matter Chicago and that really sparked my activisms jump again to this year I’m no longer working for Alternatives they fired me partly because of discrimination and also white privilege but I still do activist work with a youth lead community organization called Goodkidmadcity u can find us on IG: @gkmc18 there u can see all the community work we do . I am also a recording artist I’ll post links to my music and Vidoes soon looking forward to this experience peace and love
