I met Hannah in 10th grade hebrew class, and part of me wants to say band, but I’m not sure if my memory is serving me well today. Hannah has always been unbelievably talented not just with words, but with shapes, with drawings, with art. She exudes warmth, and softness and it’s graceful.

I’ve started this series because through my own self acceptance search/journey I’ve realized that we, as humans, all have problems with our skin suit no matter what it looks like.

I met Clare freshman year of high school and I’ve been stuck on her ever since. It’s her grace, the elegance of her walk, the softness of her voice, and the sparkle in her eyes.

I’ve known Adam since 8th grade orchestra class. It was the only class we had together until the 11th grade. It wasn’t until senior year of high school that Adam and I became what I’d like to call “friends”.
