Description This creative exploration is a study of how a girl comes to identify herself in an increasingly judgmental and harsh world. Her is a collection of short stories that are linked together through one character. The stories are intentionally fragmented to display the fragmentary nature of identity. Each story searches to find the main character through new experiences and constantly changing perspectives. Through these stories, and through this creative exploration, I have discovered that discovering who you are as a person is shaped by our reactions to the outside world. This character, her, she becomes a person who gives up on fighting the world around her. She gives into the perceptions that others make about her and becomes a fragment. She becomes the pieces that make up these stories. The intention of these stories is not to define this character. The intention is to show that definition of identity is constantly in flux. The nameless girl in these stories never discovers her identity because that identity is hidden between the lines.
