Hug Me, I Am Different

by: Elayna Alexandra Flodin, Sun City West , Arizona

I am different. Smile at me when I walk in the door. Introduce yourself and ask me my name. Invite me to play at recess like my friends at my old school Don't make fun of me. I just want to fit in.

Artist Statement

Being disabled myself, I have been drawn to working with the relationships of humans and the world. My hope is to remind the viewer to reach out. With a single gesture of outreach, compassion and understanding may grow.
