Worksheet produced during 2D class with Jai and Sean. Identity continues to be a theme I am interested in and here I was thinking about our family role identities. One of mine is Hala, which means paternal aunt in Turkish. I think about the different identities that we are given by our tribe, what they mean to us, how they shape us. I became a hala two years ago when my youngest brother's wife became a mother. I remember finding it strange and exciting to be referred to as Şenay Hala. I had never before imagined those words together and hala in my mind conjures up a very particular image that seemed to jar with my own sense of self.
