Zerandrian’s purpose is to ask the hard/uncomfortable questions that require reflection and vulnerability, to deconstruct our unconscious social constructions that guide our mental processes and ultimately our actions, and to influence youth and elders to re-imagine what is and how to push/pull the collective into living up to our full potential.
