LORD SCARECROW - FALL 2016

MIDVILLE MAJESTIC - SPRING 2016

Freelance was the first place where I felt like I truly belonged and had something to offer. You taught me how to use my voice and be proud of who I was. I made some of the greatest friends and was at home. Freelance gave me so much. I’m a Freelance kid, through and through.
