"I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school. Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate. I’d like to think I’m more open now."

Hardly a soul still lived who had whitnessed this odd display of splendor, for nowadays there were few who had the patience or stillness to wait for such events. They were creatures easily startled, after all, and were covetous of their meager dancing opportunities. Dealing with prying humans was an annoying hinderance."
