KEEP ROLLING, by Tasneca Islam

~Keep Rolling, by Tasneca Islam
"The words that say "Keep Rolling" on the picture means to keep moving forward. There is also a line in the middle of the picture. One side shows the girl in my drawing perfectly fine and the other side shows the girl after being bullied."

LABELS, by Quinn Barden

~Labels, by Quinn Barden
"I stumbled across this project last night, browsing the internet, and it captured my interest immediately. I will rise. What a perfect name. I definitely feel like I have risen so far from where I was as a teenager. I spent a lot of years hating myself, accepting the labels that were placed upon me by my peers. It wasn't until I graduated high school that I was able to see that a label can never define who you are. That being different, being odd, didn't make you any less worthwhile as a person."

STRAIGHT IN A GAY WORLD, by the GSA ( Gay, Straight Alliance ) at Art and College Prep Academy

~Straight In A Gay World, by the GSA ( Gay, Straight Alliance ) at Art and College Prep Academy
"It's about a straight teenage girl who is constantly ridiculing a gay guy at school. She wakes up one day, and everything has changed. Suddenly, her friends don't want to be friends with her because shes "straight", her teacher is married to a woman, and to make matters worse and more bizarre, her victim just became her bully."
