Now, she says she is exactly where she imagined to be.“When I discovered I wanted to be an artist is going to that festival that’s just right down the street,” Morgan said. “It’s really cool to actually be an artist and be back here in, you know, almost the exact spot where I wanted to be an artist in the first place.”last_img
