The Comics Empower Project has almost almost 100 personal stories!
This time, Izabella tells her story:
When I was a kid I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with life, so many ideas of what I wanted to be were flooding my mind and I didn’t really have a break.
I didn’t have a lot of friends and I was more of a shy book worm than anything.
So one day I went out of my comfort zone of regular books and started reading comics.
The first actual comic I read was a new age Spider-Man comic. I was so engrossed with it I got the other copies the library had and then I just got sucked into the comic book world.
So really comics made me start thinking about how I could relax and enjoy things. I mean I was a little kid worrying about my life and a who planning system was done already.
I also got into Japanese comics and anime, but really America comics will always be my first love.
They taught me just to relax a bit and enjoy all the things life wanted to give me.
Now that I’m older I actually understand all the things comics made me enjoy and even make friends over the years.
So that’s my story of how comics changed me.
