Our truths hang in that balance.

It’s said that the brain isn’t fully developed until age 25, but the battle for the mind is ongoing. Logic demands the clearcut fact, the rational guide. Emotion fights for the untamable colors, a raw feeling, an intuition. So how do we, as young people, navigate the tension of logic versus emotion that is prevalent in everything we do? Brought to you by an all-female team, Head and Heart explores this question, searching for our most authentic selves through a balance between the two.
