PSA: I'm Special

I’m Special is a child abuse PSA, a monologue of Lily’s life journey where her innocence is stripped slowly as the abuse progress.

 
CHALLENGE Child abuse is a type of issue that not many people talk about because most of the victums themselves were unaware of how to express the situation. People tend to shy away because the problems are too heavy to talk about. How can we address this issue to draw people in without shoving the problem in their face?

SOLUTION I'm special is a motion PSA piece expressing the innocence of a child being taken away due to child abuse. The abuse could happen to anyone and devastating consequences follows. Through the monologue of the child's own perspective, people go through the same journey of the abuse. It started from an innocent child telling her life story. As the story progress, something is always off, ending with suicide as consequences.
