A young woman stands in a bright, white jacket against a blank background. She is facing forward, her head held high with her face slightly tilted to the side. Her eyes are closed, and her lips are slightly parted as if she is lost in thought. Her hands are held away from her body and her head is slightly tilted as if in contemplation. Her jacket is slightly crinkled and the white fabric is illuminated by the bright light around her. Her hair is wavy and held back from her face by two clips. She stands in a graceful pose, her expression peaceful and contemplative.
