For all my life I’ve struggled with the fluid and ambiguous nature of being a person of multiple races. I never seemed to be able to identify with a specific group of people which left me feeling like an outsider everywhere I went. With this piece I turn myself face to face with life sized portraits to confront the feelings of hurt, alienation and trials from my past and present them with a new sense of self and opportunity for growth.
