Cherrise Wakeham - In This Shirt
In This Shirt is a piece about hope. It represents the process of carrying our unique burdens as individuals and as women. Every moment we’re alive, we’re given choices to allow these burdens to be an obstacle, or forge on with hope and optimism, embracing the challenges we encounter. Our burden may resurface time and time again. It may haunt us. It may call us to cope in ways we may think we are too weak to handle. But in truth, our burden is our own for a specific reason. If we can become vulnerable enough to see ourselves, flaws and all, we will come to understand all aspects of our humanness and even celebrate that within ourselves and each other.
