Brain Injury: Hit By A Car
Explanation of Mask: I painted my mask blue because it is one of the colors of brain injury awareness. The pictures on the mask describe me and parts of my life. One picture I chose was a picture of a brain with a band-aid and the words brain injury above. This was the only picture I did not color. I put the brain injury picture as the smallest and at the bottom because though it is part of me, it does not define me. The other words and pictures I chose to include are brother, uncle, godfather, husband, friend, athlete, sports fan, father, son, teacher, and advocate. I colored these images and words because they are part of who I am. The biggest item on my mask, right across the forehead, is the word survivor in all caps. All the other things pictured, and so much more, make me who I am. I am more than my brain injury; I am a survivor!
