eXpressionist Statement:

I chose this project because it interested me. When I was in ninth grade, we learned about sickle cell in my biomedical science class and it has fascinated me since. You can ask me almost anything and I will remember the smallest detail about it. My image represents the transitions from pediatric to adults with sickle cell disease. These adults are placed over a blood clot inside a vein caused by the sickled red blood cells.
