Sophomore Amber Li raised over $300 for Black Lives Matter while refining and expanding her artistic skills, creating many requests such as watercolor portraiture, digital rendering and oil painting on hydroflasks. Li contributed to the movement this summer by opening donation art commissions dedicated to fundraising for the cause. She published her commissions on Instagram for her followers. When someone requested a piece of art from Li in a certain style and price, she fulfilled the order and delivered the artwork, donating every cent of profit to a BLM organization. “Ever since I was little, I’ve dreamt of pursuing my passion for art beyond the confinements of my own room in an impactful way,” Li said. “This endeavor allowed me to do just that.”
