“Fractured Identity” is an artwork that represents the struggles of finding, knowing and recognizing the self. Here, each line seems separate from the whole, but in reality, all of the different elements are connected and come together to create a reflection of who I was, who I am and who I hope to become. Sorting through the different facets of my identity is a task I have yet to master — however, I’ve learned to embrace the broken, incomplete and growing fragments of myself while appreciating the experiences that the unknown has gifted me.
