Abstract

White Trash Cherub is a romanticized exploration of my autobiographical memory spanning a three-year period of my earl childhood when I grew up in a poor, uneducated, and abusive environment. This current work serves as a transitional passage between some of those memories and the metamorphosed perspective I now carry as an adult while simultaneously reflecting on the beauty of being human even though an individual's circumstances may not be so.
