NEW TIMES SAN LUIS OBISPO -- When Maysha Mohamedi walked into an Art class at San Francisco State University years ago, the last thing she expected to find was a reminder of home.

But that’s exactly what she got when she spotted a young woman wearing a shirt from the San Luis Obispo Academy of Dance.

Mohamedi is five years older than Maureen St. Vincent, so although the artists were both born and raised in SLO, they had never crossed paths before that art class in San Francisco.

“We were instantly friends,” Mohamedi said.
