What kind of culltarally connected artist are you?
I'm the kind who's family immigrated and lost contact with their roots. The kind who is only considered half, although which half? Where do we draw the line where the codes defined my eye color, or the curliness of my hair? The kind who's tongue wasnt blessed to speak with her grandparents. The kind who adores the ornate patterns of folkloric art and dance and longs for the mystery of the secrets that lie within the past. The kind that shares another heritage equally. I am the kind that was born in America with a mother born in Mexico, and a father born in Syria. I am Romeo and Juliet for the stars were crossed at the birth of my soul. Somedays I feel cursed by these crossed stars, and others I am in awe of their brightness, and the brightness of the sun and the moon eclipsed together. I cannot choose the sun over the moon, nor the moon over the sun. I am two in one. I am my own. I am Amira.
