Travis Wall: The Whole Package

Sweat beads drip down the forehead, the rhythm of pulsing temples pounds the brain to a point of abandon and exhaustion. Try to picture the last time you had to solve an algebra problem with a degree of difficulty so high no matter how much you tried to concentrate, you could no longer struggle to find a solution to the equation. At least that’s what I went through as teenager.

I had to succumb to these embarrassing–and out of the ordinary–moments again and again to train myself how to manipulate my brain. Let me explain: while struggling endlessly to solve the equation, I found my own way to escape the stress of the problem by taking imaginary “trips to the moon.” I transformed the negative energy of stress into a more constructive time to entertain my creative process. I realized with time, only under pressure can we create diamonds.

My stubbornness to believe in my own abilities led me to a yellow brick road that paved a way for all those I encountered to take the stage and perform their own illusion. And this, with Movmnt, is my greatest privilege to give visibility to those that believe enough in themselves to be, live, and create.
