Missed Opportunities: A Junior Narrative Diptych by Melisa Jones (2012)
Lauren was shy and often got teased by her classmates when she was younger. Because she didn't know any better, she took their words to heart, and grew up self-conscious. When she was older, she was afraid to take risks because she believed that her efforts would not be fruitful. My first picture represents an opportunity Lauren was given. The call numbers at the bottom represent the number of people who can take the job. The only number left indicates that everyone took advantage of this chance except for Lauren. As a result, she was unable to find a good job in an area she would enjoy and didn't become as successful as she would have liked.
