Name of Art: Cherry Blossom
About: “Cherry Blossom” represents the beauty of life, while reminding us how short and fragile our lives are. Similar to the blooming time of the flower itself, it teaches us to enjoy the beauty in the little things and short moments in life, to always live life to its fullest. I was named after the cherry blossom, to represent the special meaning of the flower. After my injury, the meaning of my name resonates much deeper and is a sign to remind me of the all of the gifts I still I have in my life. During my rehabilitation,I made sure to adopt this mantra. Through the difficult stages and learning to appreciate the small victories I made on my way to recovery.
