This poem explores my past, my excitement – and fears – about the future and considers those I depend on. It reflects on the conflicting ideals I hold in respect of my career choice, and the opposite sides of paper represent contrasting aspects of my personality and views. I wanted to inject my personality in the images, as well as in the text. To that end I used objects that mean most to me in creating the textures that make up the images. It felt strangely freeing to wear my heart on my sleeve, to share my story – literally to become an open book.
