Jennifer // Coping With Survivor's Guilt

Jennifer has lived through a lot. On 9/11, she had to evacuate her high school which was blocks away from the World Trade Center. Then in 2005, she fled New Orleans to escape Hurricane Katrina and relocated to Arizona, where she knew no one, in order to continue her education. Despite experiencing these traumatic events, Jennifer has always brushed them off. When her family has survived the Holocaust and the Soviet Communist Regime, her hardships never looked so bad in comparison. It was only when Jennifer finally spoke about what happened to her that she realized they affected her a lot more than she thought.
