“But Just Listen” is a website that explores the way stories of young voices can be told through conversations with an adult: particularly showcasing the student-teacher relationship. I created “But Just Listen” as a way for students of the Baltimore City Public Schools System (BCPSS) to express their views, opinions, and frustrations in a safe space. Not only does this platform act as a catharsis for the students, but it gives people of different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds than the students they work with the opportunity to listen to what they really think and experience.
