"I’ve always been a very shy person. Part of it has to do with my upbringing, and then part of it has to do with fitting the mould of the demure image that my particular race (incorrectly) connotes to certain people. So it used to be that the only photos I liked of myself were ones hiding one aspect or another. I’ve been getting less and less fearful with age and now with friends and good company, a confident, opinionated, fast-talking version of me comes out. I really think that’s the best version of Joyce, so lately I’ve begun to really like photos where I look a little intimidating even at rest.
