    One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, “I feel like being Mexican is the best thing about my life that’s why I’m so proud to be Mexican.” This sentence stood out to me because I am also proud of being Mexican. Many people think that being mexican is weakness but its actually a strength.

  • The items in my Shadow Box represent me, my counter narrative. When people look at me, they see a young man with brown skin. These are my assigned identities but they do not tell who I really am. In my shadow box

    • Dear Omar

      Im a student at San Jose State University and wanted to mention how mazing your shadow looks and represents your life. I really liked how you put the type of money where you are from to show pride where you are from. Showing pictures of yourself is a great way to show who you and show others how you look and the type of person you are and great that you mentioned your family as well. I really enjoyed reading your description and telling us the kind of person you are and how you displayed it on your shadow box.

    • Hi Omar,
      I’m a student from San Jose State University. I liked reading about your shadow box and I think you did a great job describing the differences in the identities you have taken on. I completely agree that not one identity solely defines who we are. There is much more to us than what others may see, and it is great that you are able to recognize this. I can tell you put a lot of thought into your project by including things that were really important to you such as the Oakland tree and pictures of your family. It was also nice to read about how much you embrace your culture and the pride you take in being raised in Oakland. Great job!
