Welcome to my portfolio! Throughout the semester I have been struggling to decide where I should put my focus within this portfolio. I felt compelled, after my second paper and Professor Tamura’s unit, to focus on my body and what separates me from others as well as my emotional and bodily response to those things throughout this project. One thing that makes me different from 50% of the population is noticed from the very first impression, my gender. Being female, I understand the things that make being just that very difficult, I understand the things women must think about that never occur to men. I decided with this portfolio to focus on what I understand that other people cannot understand, to concentrate on shining light on those perspectives not everyone has. I also wanted to write about some things I have been struggling with and experiencing in my life recently because writing about them helped me work through them. I hope you enjoy my perspective on other perspectives.
