One in nine girls and one in fifty-three boys under the age of eighteen experience sexual abuse or assault at the hands of an adult. In my youth I had a male peer in middle school who regularly did not respect personal boundaries and at one point exposed himself to me to which I quickly left and told someone. This experience made me aware of sexual abuse of young people, therefore I dedicated this story to victims who were not as lucky as me.
I believe storytelling is a signature, a privilege of the human experience, an establishment of our nature. The stories told created society. Stories outlive people. Storytelling is habitually human, but it is also a wonder in how challenging it is as a skill, a skill that has also never been easy for me. I exercise my ability to tell a story because the best stories can generate an entire world from introspection.
