Rearing of a City

Sarah J. Schuen

This selection is an amazing reflection of Sarah’s creative thought, her analytical skills, and her written expression. It portrays her perceptions of our current world through the impact members have upon the city into which they move. Her recognition of the tension between the Right and Left brain and the subtlety with which she demonstrates this is quite impressive.

To be answered by the student

This piece is outstanding in that it personifies a city through rich descriptions and metaphors, while drawing upon elements of the Divided Brain Theory. The interplay between the Right and Left Brains combined with fresh and creative subject matter made it quite the joy to dream up!
