I was unable to attend the closing reception but I was able to go to the critiques. It was so awesome to be able to see the seniors projects come together and to a close as well as to see them present each of their projects. The one that stuck with me the most was Alisha’s project “Curls Curls Curls.” She put so much into her project and after hearing her present I was deeply moved. She was able to address so many themes in one foul swoop, race, culture, beauty, acceptance, confidence, the list could go on. It was so beautiful, raw, and bold of her. I love and admire the passion she and all the other seniors put into these amazing projects!
