Our very own visual artist, Shawn-Paul Filtranti, captained a Boston Duck Boat during the New England Patriots victory parade on Tuesday, February 7th.  Braving the winter elements, Shawn-Paul drove a Duck Boat full of some of the most beloved Patriots alumni including Mike Vrabel, Joe Andruzzi, and Tedy Bruschi.  Shawn-Paul is a long time Express Yourself artist, lifelong Patriots fan, and part-time Duck Boat driver. Shawn-Paul brings his love of sports and teamwork back to the Express Yourself studio and community, where he inspires the youth to work together and support each other in reaching the goal of putting on a grand performance (#doyourjob.)  The day was dream come true and he was thrilled to share his stories and joy with the Express Yourself youth.  “I have such respect for the youth we work with who deal with adversity and mental illness. Like the Patriots, facing a game that’s going against you, they #nevergiveup.”
