This Shadow Box represents my three different identities. I choose to be female, student and a young sister. Many people assume that I’m a bad person or I’m in a gang because most of the time I’m wearing red on my clothes and a red rosary on. I see myself as a person that is strong and nice and that never gives up. My Mexico flag  is a counter narrative for me because it represents truly who I am. Even though some people think that I am mixed. I have chosen to include a baby picture of me because it represents how much I have grown.
