Food Self Portrait

For my food self portrait I chose to do strawberries because in Mexican culture “fresa” which translates to strawberries in English is how girls that are seen as “dumb” or “clueless” are called. Due to my intrest in Fashion, this is a label I have always dealt with. When I was younger I failed to notice the derogratory aspect of the word, but now as I am older it . bothers me how quick people are to judge a girl just because of the way she looks.

I decided to spell out my name with strawberries that have carved faces on them. The expression of the strawberries is representative of the way I now feel towards the word.
