This Shadow Box represent me. My box has some of my important identities that matter to me. When some people look at me, they see a criminal and a bad person. Many people assume that I don’t speak up for my rights because I’m always out of the way. I just don’t like associating with people I don’t know, I’m always on my own.
When I look up into the future, I see myself as a writer and a teacher. When I write, I feel like I can teach people my age or older things that they don’t know.
The items in my box are counter narratives. A counter narrative is a message that offers a positive alternative to the negative perceptions of society. As you can see I have chosen these counter narratives as my items so people can see a different side of me and my personality.
Many people in society expect the worst because I’m black but after this you shouldn’t.Tags: #Lifeacademy #Shadowboxes #EthnicStudies #YouthVoices #FAX
