Reyna Saldana had a tough time growing up. She was born addicted to heroin and sexually assaulted at age 3. She bounced around to dozens on places throughout her childhood, including foster homes, mental health facilities and youth prison. Her journey isn't over, nor are the struggles, but she's now overcoming her past. What helped her get through these tough times, a momentary escape when she needed it most? Drawing. When she puts pencil to paper, everything else seems to fade away.
