I was going through a very uncomfortable time during puberty. Both the middle school life and events at home were turning me into a very different person. Thus I was becoming more and more cynical, temperamental and incredibly lonely. Suicidal thoughts were also very common from the age of 13.
I could not live safely in the world so ugly and unfair. It seemed like the only way to survive was to blend in with the rest of the mean-spirited crowd.
So I became a class caricaturist.
