Meet 18 year-old Tiny, a student at John McDonogh High School in New Orleans. She's a little girl with big personality who struggles with the loss of her father in addition to her bipolar disorder.
"Tiny is on meds, and at times, when she's on [them], she's the sweetest thing you ever want to meet," he says. "And if she's not, you have to be very delicate about how you approach her."
Says Tiny, "The days when I have my bad days... it's going to stick with me that whole day."
