Black Liquorice

This strong little lady was inspired by "To This Day" by Shane Koyczan, a powerful and beautiful poem about bullying. 

"They did not like me because I was different. They told me that I was strange...They called my name, fight with me, and told me that I do not belong. They told me, no one will love me. But they are wrong."

She features my first nose carving, boiled and conditioned heat-resistant hair, and a crochet scarf and leg warmers set by me. :) She also features a wonderful dress by the talented Jolielenie <3
