I met Aaliyah while I was on a job in LA. She is definitely the most unlike LA person you could think of - no fassade, just a genuine soul with an incredibly heatwarming story.
After moving to the city of dreams she struggled settling in and went through a tough time in her life. She realized that her fascination with clowns from her childhood became more present again and started playing with the fasion aspects of clown costumes. She decided to wear different clown makeup everyday for a whole month which made her feel happier. She has never looked back since.
Whenever she is sad she will dress up as a clown in her own style and stroll the streets of her neighbourhood. Saving up all her money for a clowning school, she wants to turn clowning into her profession and bring happiness to people like her inspiration Patch Adams.
