Comfortable in My Shell


Ally Janson

My name is Ally and I am 16 years old. I have Hydrocephalus, Basilar Invagination, Crouzon Syndrome, and Chiari Malformation. I tend to be shy when talking about my conditions, but art allows me to come out of my shell. My piece is entitled, “Comfortable in My Shell”. I have noticed that every turtle has an individual pattern on their shells, which is just as unique as every person. I am unique because of my conditions.
