“Hazel is my tribute to the eccentrics that flavor rural mountain towns, a tilt of the hat to the young at heart, and a suggestion that the richest self-discovery happens when we look to others first.”

My senior thesis is a creative piece, a narrative containing characters I have tinkered with for years. In a small-town setting, a young girl’s coming of age is spurred by the decisions she faces when her grandmother is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. I have chosen to tell their story in script form; a medium born for transition and fitting for a story about change.
