My Shadow Box
By: Jessica Hernandez
This shadow box represents the dominant and counter narratives that I have. On the outside of my shadow box I have some dominant narratives about myself. Many people assume that my ethnicity is Mexican. Some others would also assume that I’m always very feminine by looking at me. The inside of my box are my counter narratives. My ethnicity is actually Guatemalan, which is what the flag inside of my box represents. My gender identity is female, but I don’t always see myself as feminine like for example the picture of me in a duck costume. I have chosen to include a picture of me and my brother because it shows that I’m a younger sibling. Many people believe that since I’m younger I got everything I wanted, I’m always very feminine, and that I come from a different ethnicity, but its not true.Tags: #counternarratives #EthnicStudies #MyIdentities #ShadowBoxes Life Academy of Health and Bioscience
