My name is Amanda Rose. I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota. My mother immigrated here from Jamaica and my father is from Michigan. I’m wearing a casual Caribbean inspired dress and Vans sneakers. My outfit takes inspiration from my intersecting American and Afro-Caribbean identities. I am surrounded by American snack foods and foods that are popular in the Caribbean. I grew up enjoying all of these foods. These items only provide a glimpse into my complex multicultural identity.
