My Shadow Box
This box represents me because the objects I have in the box have affected me in many different ways. One item that has a big effect on me that I have in this box is the three flags. Those have an effect on me because I am Mexican and people think Mexicans are not good people but I am a good person. That was a dominant narrative that is not true about who I am. I am not what people think I am. I am also an American child who likes to be active and do many things people would think I won’t do. The two flags combined together explain me being a Mexican American kid. That is my counter narrative to the stereotypes put on me. My PS4 control and my headset shows one of my chosen identities and how I can talk to people without having any male siblings who can understand me. I can just have my friends to talk to about whatever we want. The picture of me and my parents shows how I value my parents care for them because they are always going to be there for me when I need them. They have affected my life the most because without them I would be a completely different person and I don’t think that person would be a very good person but since they have always cared for me I think I’ve turned out to be a good kid even when life is hard.Tags: #darkskin #EthnicStudies #Male #ShadowBoxes LifeAcademy
