Say what you want about the possible dangerous effects of the Internet (ok, boomer), but it’s undeniable that it helps people find their community. Sometimes it hap – pens intentionally, but more often than not, we stumble upon people we con – nect with unexpectedly. Take Issa Barte, for example. She used to post her art on her Instagram as a personal project, but through time, her platform transformed into something communal. It became a safe space where people can share their stories without judgment and with full confidence that Issa will treat it with care and compassion.
