All I Have to Say

An ode to every memory of happiness. Multiple love letters to people and places. Intimate connections with musicians and music. Dealing with depression. Learning how to love one’s hair, one’s family, one’s language, one’s self. Figuring out the true meaning of home. These are just some of the themes and stories in All I Have to Say, a collection of original memoirs written by juniors at the High School of Fashion Industries in partnership with 826NYC. The students learned that they are the experts of their own stories—and we are lucky that they are willing to share that expertise with us.
