“My piece is about Isolation. It shows a girl sitting alone by her lockers, upset and surrounded by a color full environment reflecting happiness and excitement. The girl feels alone and not comfortable talking to anyone about her isolation, afraid of being judged and bullied. After she gets home and is asked by her parents “How was school today?” she never tells them about her feelings and always answers it was “ok”.”
