“The only thing I felt like I had left to make me happy was art,” she told News 12.

This week, Chelsea was at Sacred Heart in Jersey City, which was put into a lockdown during the mass shooting that killed six earlier this month. She says she also delivered 130 art kits to kids who were impacted by the mass shooting in El Paso.
