Favorite Quote:
"Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars."

I am the pale white sand scattered along the beach.
Raised in the town with one red light, a place where fierce battles were fought-Cowpens.
Bound hand and foot with tape to cover my thin lips,
Often scared to share my own ideas and thoughts like a turtle trapped inside its shell.
Rarely able to make that much needed move.
A closed bottle floating across the ocean,
Hard to find, hard to open, hard to break.
5'5" of heart, hurt, and humanity.
A philanthropist.
I am Hannah Pettit.

The author's comments:
I was given an assignment by the teacher to include my skin tone, location or heritage, an animal, the way I move through the world, and my height and use them in a descriptive way to describe myself.
