This Shadow Box represents me because I put my chosen identity and my assigned identities that are being Latino and living in Oakland and being an older brother. I put things that represent me being all those identities. When people look at me they think that I’m shy and that I don’t want to talk but that’s not true I decide just not to talk. They might also think that I only speak Spanish. I live in Oakland and people think it is bad and when they look at me and I say I’m from Oakland and they think I’m up to no good just because I’m from Oakland. These are all dominant narratives. Some things I put in the box are a Mexican flag and a American flag. My nationality is American but my ethnicity is Mexican and I lived in Mexico in Tijuana for a little bit.Tags: #Ethnistudies #ShadowBoxes LifeAcademy
