Mason Persons – Costume Designer 
I am a sewist, designer, model, storyteller, youth advocate and justice consultant. I am passionate about expressing myself freely and advocating for my peers to express themselves too. One of my favorite forms of resistance is following my passion, and my passion is to create! I’ve been an artist my whole life and have been sewing since I was a small child. I aim to connect to myself and the world around me through the combination of my love for the arts, passion for activism, and the magic of storytelling.
