‘my special place’

By Erin McNealy

Oconee County Schools K-12

"My square is about finding your place or niche in life. I represented the friends and family in my life who support me and help me be resilient. My mom is an example of personal resilience in my life. When I was little, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is now recovered and is living well and isn't suffering from major medical problems. Her strength encourages me to be resilient. I couldn't imagine going through the hardships she has. Sleeping and being in a quiet room is also a kind of resilience. I can recharge and be ready for the next day and not hang onto the troubles of yesterday. "
