Can a colour help us find our identity?

Elettra Arnell, 26

My video explores the importance of colours in our lives.

When I was a teenager, it was difficult to talk about my opinions and my feelings. I felt I wasn’t that interesting, and therefore there was no need to talk. So I started to draw instead, and through the use of red I felt strong emotions, and it made me feel alive. It helped expressing my feelings, and I finally felt I had a value, and I was part of this world. Without it, I might not be as strong as I am today.

During our life, we choose specific colours, in specific situations, sometimes without even realising it, and they can help us overcome fears and doubts. The colours are important as they can influence who we become, helping us finding our own identity in this society.
