I choose flowers because I identify with nature. In many ways, flowers are beautiful, the ones I use are artificial, and it’s a metaphor for my life. I can say that my life is beautiful, but at the same time, sometimes I do not feel real; sometimes, nothing happens, but deep down, everything happens. I added to the notebook some clippings, letters or messages that friends had been giving me, and I decided to narrate my childhood and how my life has been since I was six years old. It is a biography; I wanted to share with the world what I have lived through and the important events of my life. Writing helped me, without any doubt, to heal and express many repressed feelings.
My name is Kellyn Lisbeth Cordoba, I am part of the Siloé community in the city of Cali, Colombia.
