My name is Lilian Wang. I am the director of the online concert “Rose That Grew From Concrete: The Breakthrough”. The Breakthrough aims to bring attention to the veiled effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of teens.


Concrete represents the hardships we face and the obstacles we must overcome, whereas the Crack symbolizes an opportunity to grow from that concrete. The final product, the Rose, illustrates something beautiful “blooming” as a result of being brave and willing. Even though our lives have more or less returned to what they were two years ago, the emotional impact of the times is still evident. Many teens have been left with symptoms of anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and depression. Going from minimal human interactions to being surrounded by people is a difficult transition that is especially hard when having to deal with it alone.


This is why I have decided for all proceeds from this concert to go to Stanford Children’s Hospital. They have consistently been named as the top 10 children’s hospitals in the nation, with specialized services in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. Any act of kindness is appreciated! 100% of your donation goes directly to the Stanford Children's Hospital. Thank you so much.
