You Don’t Know My Story- Sophomore Kayley Norman

Faith Boyd, Staff Reporter

“Behind every person lies a story”

Ritenour High School believes that for each person there is a story. That we don’t know what the other person is going through so we must not judge others. We are sharing stories of students and staff, not to be a voyeur into others pain, but to show that we all deserve some compassion.

Sophomore Kayley Norman

“I found the strength within my art when I was thirteen. This was a time in my life when everything was temporary. I did not have a steady home. My family stayed in a couple of different places and I struggled a lot with that. I was depressed. I fell out of love with everything, and I needed stimulation for my brain. There was not much entertainment where I was staying, so drawing became a way to keep my head busy. I went through at least three whole sketchbooks in the span of about a year. I tried new things, drew new people, and made new friends through my art. I finally began to love something again. I was so excited about everything art. It was an escape that I relished in. With my artist’s hands, I saved myself.”
