My name is Melisa and I really love my life! I am from Istanbul and I live here as well. My hair colour is brown and my eyes are hazel. My favourite subject in school is art. Life over here, where I live, is really good.  I go to a really good school and I really like going to all the classes I go to, for example I take piano lessons after school. I  love my life because I think I’m really lucky.


We studied Frida Carlo’s work before drawing our own self portraits and writing about ourselves. Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter who was best known for her self portraits. Kahlo’s life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. Her work has also been described as surrealist, and in 1938 André Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, described Kahlo’s art as a “ribbon around a bomb” Frida rejected the “surrealist” label; she believed that her work reflected more of her reality than her dreams.
