About this submission

I chose to tell a story about a girl who feels she has no purpose in her life because that's how I feel most as a hyphenated American. I wanted to show, in an abstract way, the way it feels to feel nothing and everything all at once and how easy it is for many to take advantage of your sadness and loss of identity. Identity is big in America and if you don't have one, it often feels like you are left behind. I wanted to give that perspective to an audience.
