Process

I had to write an essay for a scholarship based on body image and how I would change it. It inspired this story and posts on Instagram helped with the motivation.

 

Revolutionary Moment

I'm finally a senior and as I shared my stories with Chaya, we saw how different we are, yet still, we connected. I often had talked about after school programs and my college process and it made Chaya reflect to the time when she was my age and was going through the same things.
