(un)Mask In my four years of college, my mindset and outward demeanor have changed dramatically. Through starting to live for myself, I’ve recaptured a feeling of comfort in my own skin - leaving the box that trapped my dreams, laugh, and overall expression. Without the pandemic, I know there would have been a huge change on what kind of person I demonstrated to those in the halls, my peers in class, professors, and friends. However, since we have been so restricted and because this change has been so important to me, I want to take the stage of this senior show to display it here instead. I am thrilled about who I am, grateful for the experiences I’ve had, and confident in the direction I’m going. I want to have this version of me, my version, be the leaving point of my college experience - for any and all to see. This series recounts the shift I’ve experienced – one I hope may encourage those who see it. Perhaps for a classmate, friend, or anyone, my embraced openness can embolden their own.
