The purpose of this project is to explore the concept of vulnerability and the ways (commonly neglected) in which it can be a strength.  Peeling back the layers of complex experiences to expose various societal issues & constructs which cause black women, specifically, to avoid vulnerability. Ultimately alluding to the idea that there is strength in vulnerability. Reinforcing vulnerability as the the key to greater courage, authentic confidence, adequate self-discovery, genuine intimacy, and as a result, true self-expression. The piece will tie back to self love, improvement,  & empowerment.
