INTO THE EXCEPTION
Judgements and criticisms linger in our surroundings. There is a constant fear of not being accepted by society, being brushed off by peers or standing out like a sore thumb.
I can identify. Personally, I find that it hinders us from venturing out and expressing who we really are as we plunge into a whirl of uneasiness.
Through this issue, which we’ve aptly named: “Divergent District”, we are aspiring to encourage people out there to cast your fears aside. We aim to spread awareness regarding the underlying meaning behind deviating from the standard.
