Getting by . . . blending in . . . hiding my identity… will there bea time when I can walkthis world without fearof hate or violence toward who I am and what I was MEANT TO BE?

Artist Statement

My submission shows viewers how teenage girls feel about themselves physically. Society has taught girls that no matter what your body looks like, you are never pretty enough. The Barbie faces and body markings are to show that to be “perfect” you have to have a pretty face and be skinny, just like a Barbie doll.
