My Creative Connection: What inspires you to create?
Sakita Holley: Everything. I think there is an infinite amount of space and opportunity to create amazing things so long as you keep your eyes and mind open. I’ve trained myself to find possibility in the void.
For instance, I’m always thinking about how to improve and get better, so finding inspiration is something that is intentional. One of the things that I always say is ‘action creates inspiration.’ So you have to be- and remain engaged in order for inspiration to hit because if you wait for it, it’ll never come.
Another way I find inspiration is through reading. I consume a lot of different media and information and instead of just reading for entertainment, I’m always looking for meaning between the lines. I look for the lesson that I can take and immediately apply to my own life.
Lastly, I would say that I feel that we all have a responsibility to create some type of art. Other people made sacrifices and paved the way for us, so the least we can do is to continue to illuminate that path with our own light.
