The room is fifteen by twelve feet. It has one bay window and one closet. The basic statistics denote a typical bedroom, but beyond the spartan details, it is a vivid and tangible representation of the person who lives there. The bed is impeccably made, and beyond carefully arranged knick knacks nothing obscures the surfaces.
The room glows as if a sun is bursting, the rays ricocheting from the orange marmalade walls to the pink and green striped curtains to the haphazard lemon swirled bean bag chair. Dozens of pictures of friends and family are in a prearranged state of chaos on the brightly flowered memo board. The collectibles crowd the shelf: elephants and stone boxes from India and snow globes of the Disney princesses.
My room is a representation of me. I am organized, logical and intellectual. But this description only scratches the surface. I am creative, passionate and Indian. It would be a huge oversight to only be exposed to the statistics; the details are what have made me who I am today.
