This picture shows off a lot of hard work to transform Amanda into Emily Dickinson for her"Images of Greatness" school project. I think she chose Dickinson because she read one of her poems last year and she was really able to relate to Dickinson. The poem is an expression of how she felt about the loneliness and isolation of chemotherapy treatment.
I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.
How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
