Artist’s Statement: My name is Madeika Vercella and I am currently a third year student pursuing an Honors English Literature degree. I am also a member of the selective Honors College Novel Writing Program and am at work on a project titled On Being a One Percenter, which tells the coming-of-age story of young Haitian-American named Josie who moves to a big city one summer to pursue a ballet dancing career. The following excerpt features a vignette and primarily focuses on an early childhood interaction between Josie and her grandmother.
