The Pakistani American Experiance

This photo attempts to incorporate the South Asian Culture mixed with American Culture. The jewelry is very Pakistani yet the attire and sunglasses would be seen as American and maybe even something "trendy". Immigrants go through so many struggles and one includes fitting in regardless of their cultural norms at home which most likely are different. This picture shows the dual sides of many South Asian girls and just a small bit of many struggles they have to fit into the American society.
