The story behind the story:

Professor Wilentz’s class, Personal Essay, is intense. Writing about ones self is not easy! I had no idea what I was going to write, but I knew I wanted to write about my mother’s journey. Unfortunately, it’s more about my journey than hers, but she is an integral part of the story.  My story is not supposed to be shocking at least that was not my intension. It’s about identity and depression and how when those to worlds collide can create someone you never imagined you’d become, and do.
