Motto or message to classmates: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is a song I hold near and dear to my heart. It tells the story of a young girl, black belt in karate, working for the city, disciplining her body. Yoshimi does these things to defeat those evil-natured robots programmed to destroy us. She is relentless in her battle — taking lots of vitamins, knowing that she must be strong to fight them. I believe that we all have our own Pink Robots — whether they be mental health issues, interpersonal conflicts, or external pressures. What is important is that we continue to believe in ourselves, understanding that we can get through whatever rough patch that we’re experiencing. Once we have faith in our own abilities, we can press on and find our own inner Yoshimi.
