“Metamorphosis” by Michelle Joffe

“This piece captures the nostalgia of rummaging through your mom’s closet as a kid and the desire kids have of wanting to always feel older. Trying on my moms nice clothes, heels, and makeup made me feel like I was “all grown up”, but now as I get older all I want is to feel like a kid again. I wish I could tell my younger self to slow down and cherish the freedoms and simplicity you have because it all disappears so fast. I think it’s funny that toys and games are marketed to make the kids feel like they are adults, with fake phones, career games, and baby dolls. Now I just find myself rewatching my favorite childhood barbie movies and envying the fun and worry free world that I once lived in.” – Michelle Joffe, VADA Senior
