Portrait of Rosa

I have to say that Rosa was the most exuberantly, friendly person that I have made a portrait of and interviewed. She loved people so much that she had fun helping and talking to me. It was exciting to be around her because of her loveliness.

Rosa worked at Bed Bath and Beyond and had been there for three years. “I like to work with people, see new people and to service people.”

Rosa also loved to shop at Bed Bath and Beyond because “I love my house and I love to decorate it.”

Rosa was originally from Guatemala City, Guatemala. She moved to the United States about 15 years .prior to our interview, specifically to Los Angeles, California, then to San Fernando, and finally to Antelope Valley where she had been living for 12 years.

Rosa aspired to one day “have my own business, my own office, and to be my own boss.”
