Behind everything, there lies a story.
While attending a bereavement camp, we had the opportunity to express what grief felt like for us in an artistic way. I chose to paint this mask.
This is the mask I wore ever since the year that changed my life.
It's split down the middle to signify the battle I had between those two emotions.
To appear happy on the outside, but be filled with sadness on the inside.
So, for three years, this was my life. And I want you to know that within that time, I was both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.
