Entry Description

The main purpose of making this body of work ia to speak against prejudieces because of different sex, cultures and religions. In this work I examined the life of young women around the age of 15, all living in The Netherlands but have their roots elsewhere. Around the age of 15 girls are between an interesting period of becoming a women. It brings future possibilities, vulnbility and naivety at the same time. Creating and finding their first steps of their identity as an individual as well as in their cultural heritage. Esspecialy nowadays there is a strong need to express the strength in female glory to the ​world and to express their spirituality, cultural pride and global awareness.
