"I went to a bilingual elementary school where I learned Spanish and English. My school used art a lot in their curriculum. Therefore, we learned about Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and though it has been a long time, I still remember some facts about Frida Kahlo. I know she was famous for her self-portraits and that she was very much influenced by her husband Diego Rivera, and also Mexican culture post-Revolution. She tried to incorporate Mexico's culture into her paintings. I think she also had polio or some kind of disability that affected her spine and legs, which is why she wore big, long skirts, to conceal that."
