Ashly Ramirez participated in Youth Media Project’s 2009 Summer Intensive to create this piece, her first, which portrays a young woman’s struggle through childhood and adolescence.  Themes of abuse, domestic violence, neglect, mental illness and institutionalization are depicted in poetic and lyrical detail.  This piece has been used in advocacy groups to dialogue about suicide and domestic violence.
