About the work: This blog post gives an introspective view of my life and what joining the Psyche Inspired team means to me: I describe my early fears and tribulations that led to issues later in my life, and how those issues changed my perspective and caused me to grow, return to college, and eventually join Psyche Inspired.

The Psyche asteroid centered in the photo, with "Psyche" written above it and "Soul of the Asteroid Belt" written below in metallic letters. A bright light can be seen behind the asteroid itself, causing an aura to form around Psyche, which is exuding blue and-purple lightning behind it.

Major: forensic psychology

Genre/Medium: digital illustration

About the work: Displayed here is the Psyche asteroid exuding a blue and purple electric aura, alluding to the possibility of it being the core of a planet. When I think of the core of our planet, I think of the magnetic field it generates, and when I picture magnetic attraction in my mind, it is represented by electricity. The title, “Soul of the Asteroid Belt”, alludes to the fact it was named after the Greek goddess of the soul, which is written in metallic letters to represent the metallic make-up of the asteroid.
