Artwork description: 

Using your voice in any shape or form to advocate for the change you want to see in this world is an active step towards achieving it. Currently, the world is facing numerous challenges that is testing humanity to its extreme. In such situations we need to unite and optimize the use of our privilege to stand and speak up for the injustice that is normalized and embedded within our society. With this artwork I aim to reconnect different communities within our nation. 

As apart of today’s youth I see many people jumping on trends and using social media to its bare minimum in order to advocate for an injustice thousands have people have lost their lives fighting for. I want to remind the youth that by simply posting a black image or liking posts, you have not used your voice to its maxium. Your job does not finish there. The two hands reaching and yearning to touch with not an inch separating them represents humanity finally acknowledging the marginalization of communities and the desperation to eradicate racism. 

This Michelangelo inspired artwork symbolizes that we are still fighting and will continue to fight until justice is served. The pop of red ribbon entangling the hands acts as a beacon of hope for the future. For our future. The actions we make now impact us. Partnering and recognizing the consequences of our actions will bring us together as a community. The repetition of ‘Be the change’ is almost a chant, drilling the concept in our minds until we realize that change does not occur until we use our voice. The combination of these concepts within this artwork encompasses partnerships in action and using our student voice to reach out and be the change.​​
