As a coeliac I had to go to a lot of medical appointments when I was younger and my classmates would often ask me where I was going. This would make me uncomfortable and anxious that everyone was looking at me and interfering. I told my parents about this and how I didn't like everyone knowing what was going on. So they told me that people like to be nosy and to tell them it was none of their business, and then my dad gave me a really good reply to use - I'm going to the moon to eat cheese with unicorns. This made me laugh so much and helped me cope with classmates asking uncomfortable questions. For this project I wanted to bring that to life and looking at this reminds me that I only need to tell people what I am comfortable with.
