My class recently completed a unit on Myths, Legends, and Folklore. One of the assignments was to create a creature using stylistic elements learned during our study. Gabby created a powerful modern monster using simple materials and language. She writes:

When I hear stories about people changing their image to be something they’re not it’s so sad, and I feel it is important to bring awareness to being self confident, and being yourself. When I chose to make a monster as part of our folklore project, I wanted something unique. Words are very powerful and can be used to build someone up or tear them down. This was a perfect idea for a monster, with a little glue and paper I made a powerful monster.
