  • 2. Thesis
  • 3. Personal Relevance
    I decided to do this project because I’ve been in the situation where I’ve been teased and made fun of. I’ve also been in the situation where I felt like suicide was the only way out of a rough situation. Seeing the recent suicides, especially among gay students, sparked an anger and concern within me. I want to leave my footprint in someway shape or form.
