Self Portrait

Please tell us about yourself.

Portrait 1
Why did you choose this course? Where do you come from? What do you think your gender is? Your race? Your sexuality? Do you have any skin-stories?

What is your favorite pastime? What is your plan for the future? One thing about you which other people do not know of......

Portrait 2
Let's suppose you are going to a cultural exchange program in China to share ideas of gender, sexuality, race, class. You meet with your paired friend, Xiumei, who was born in China, grew up in China, has never heard of the United States (That's impossible, but let's suppose. :-) ) How would you introduce yourself to her in terms of gender, sexuality, race, and class and make yourself understood by her?
