Her comments echo the same feelings that Brax expressed during a Svage magazine interview in 2018 when she said: “My role is to create art straight from my heart. For I know that art will be pure, poetic, powerful, and healing.” She added: “All I want to do is help the world heal. That’s when things will begin to shift.”
