Aspiring Hip Hop artist by night, educator by day, Charles David Washington was always an encourager at heart. In the wake of early life hurts and horrors, he rediscovered his inner-child, and with that discovery, hope and healing. Life is a blank canvas, and as a holder of the brush, Charles aims to share stories with children that encourage them to take the things they wished were different and paint new stories.
