“You never really understand a person until you consider things from him point of view… Until you climb inside his skin and walk around in it.” - Harper Lee
Our quote was selected to be put on the wall in Hamilton Smith at the balcony entrance on the second floor.
We chose this quote because we felt it brings a new perspective for active students. Harper Lee is a famous Writer well known for her book 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. Many high schools require this as a in school reading which brings some familiarity for students to the quote author. For this reason we chose to put a mockingbird as our style guide. Not only does this connect to one of her books, but we decided a bird was perfect because from the point of view of a bird it can overview everything. A birds point of view compared to a humans is very different which ties perfectly into the part of the quote about seeing things inside of someone else's skin. As a group we felt our quote can encourage students and faculty to see situations from someone else's skin, and ultimately inspire people to accomodate everyone in the best way possible.
Overall as a team we were very excited with how our project came out. The design fits perfectly with the quote and the new location was the perfect spot for it. We hope students and teachers feel the same way and are inspired when they come across our project.
