Eliza Coulson, who is 20 years old, turned her personal experience into award-winning artistry after she was sexually harassed by a man she had just met.

“He stirred me feel as if it was normal, although I knew I felt uncomfortable, ” she says. “I was scared.”

The occurrences contributed to the creation of a project on “self-love, self-worth, and self-empowerment”.

“I utilized my art as a means to process what I’d had been through, ” she says. Now, she utilizes her artistry as instruments to empower others.

A year later, she was called Young Photographer of the Year at the Scottish Portrait Awards 2018. Eliza has told the BBC Scotland news website how art helped her channel positivity into her life and the lives of others.
