Title: Broken Self-esteem

Medium: pen, broken mirror pieces, hot glue, acrylic

Jhalisa Bayer - Wyandanch Memorial High School

Grade: 11th (2014/15 school year)

"Broken Self-esteem: Tired, of being criticized by society and compared to others. Wanting to look in the mirror and see myself and not just another twisted, stereotyped reflection created by society. Desiring to celebrate my strengths, positive personality and brilliant characteristics. I'm at a stand still struggling against the sound of harsh suggestions representing what society expects me to be. Although, I have eventually learned to tune them out I am still affected by lingering issues. My reflection will never be complete until I stop dwelling on my flaws and learn to accept myself for who I really am."
