My piece is on women and the word “history,” so I decided to put those words together. The idea that inspired both my poster and the short story is really the idea of woman power. The story isn’t about a woman herself being powerful, but more about women being able to write a story because women today are still discriminated against across industries, whether we recognize it or not. The poster symbolizes sisterhood, women from different backgrounds coming together, and the idea that we are all stronger together.

I started this piece after I went to the doctor’s office for the first time during COVID. I realized this would be the last time I would be in this small office because I’m turning 18 and next year I may be far from home because of college. It reminded me that I might not always have my mom by my side in places where you have to make important decisions or hear sensitive information. The possibility of being away from home for the first time made me wonder how my connection to myself and my family would change. This piece is about the worries of growing up, the changing bonds of family, and finding home when everything seems to be moving under your feet.
