I began the webcomic series Pretty, Pretty Ugly as a way to cope with social anxiety disorder. Anxiety has always been a part of my life, and at times it has held me back and frustrated me. But through comics, I found a way to turn my frustration into communication. Pretty, Pretty Ugly is about seeing the humor in awkward moments, and letting go of expectations of what a “normal” person should be like. Learning to laugh through embarrassing moments has changed my life for the better, and I hope to make everyone else laugh/cringe with me!
